This poor family of cats and kittens has taken up residence within the walls of an abandoned house in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The kitties thought they could finally find a place to protect themselves, far from outside dangers and people.

But when they started using the place as a puppy daycare, the lot filled to the brim. Although this place was not a suitable place for an animal to live even in the beginning, it has become an even more unsuitable place for newborn cats.

When the owners of the abandoned house heard dull, muffled voices coming from behind the walls, they realized they had to do something. So they called their contractor, and he began by exploring the surrounding area to see if there were any injured animals in this dangerous location. He carefully began to drill a hole in the wall to discover the cause of the commotion. While he was doing this, a newborn kitten fell into his hands!

The contractor realized that this poor baby was not alone and therefore continued his work with great care. Working for a total of eight hours, he removed cat by cat and kitten by kitten from the walls. Unfortunately, the health of the unfortunate furballs was not good at all and no one could be sure how long they had been inside the walls. Couldn’t they get out? The contractor only stopped working when he was sure he had removed all the cats and kittens from the place that had almost become their grave.

This anonymous entrepreneur brought the entire cat family to the Animal Care and Control Team (ACCT) in Philadelphia. Here, each cat was examined in detail and then the necessary treatment process was started. But unfortunately, one of the newborn kittens was not lucky enough to survive. Following this loss, they began working even harder to ensure that other cats could have a second chance at life. They washed the remaining cats and kittens to rid them of dust and dirt that had accumulated on them due to their stay in the construction zone. The cats were not “in great condition,” ACCt representatives said. “The cats are extremely scared, some will need further socialization, but for now they are resting in their cages.”

Although they are avoiding close contact with people for now, hopefully they will realize they are in a safe environment in the coming weeks. The team supporting them will then decide whether the adult cats are suitable for adoption. These cats have probably never seen a human treat them properly before. Therefore, they must first get used to the feeling of being surrounded by people.

The kittens’ parents also focus on their recovery and progress while the rescue team cares for the kittens. The team will also spay and neuter and vaccinate the puppies as they reach adulthood, and they will then be ready to find their forever homes. But newborn cats will stay with this team for a while until they reach the appropriate age and health for adoption.
