Mushu poses on Britteny Hortonâs shoulder Monday afternoon.
Anyone who reads the news knows it isnât 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.
âSomeone was returning a book when they heard meowing coming from the box,â says Colville Police Chief Bob Meshishnek. âSomeone had dropped a kitten in there and left it.â
That was a pretty catty and cruel thing to do.
Meshishnek was unable to comment on how long the animal might have been in the drop-off box. A library staff member was called to unlock the box so law enforcement could retrieve the tiny, two-pound kitten.
