Kitten rescued from library drop box

November 8, 2011

Mushu poses on Britteny Horton’s shoulder Monday afternoon.

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.”
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.
