Kitten rescued from library drop box

November 8, 2011

Anyone who reads the news knows it isn’t always the good tidings that make the headlines. Occasionally though, a story with a sorrowful storyline turns into one with a happy ending. Such is the case with Mushu the kitten.
Last Saturday, the Colville Police Department received a call that a kitten had been put into one of the drop boxes meant for returned items out front of the Colville Public Library.
“Someone was returning a book when they heard meowing coming from the box,” says Colville Police Chief Bob Meshishnek. “Someone had dropped a kitten in there and left it.”
