Mushu poses on Britteny Hortonâ€™s shoulder Monday afternoon.
Anyone who reads the news knows it isnâ€™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.
â€śSomeone was returning a book when they heard meowing coming from the box,â€ť says Colville Police Chief Bob Meshishnek. â€śSomeone had dropped a kitten in there and left it.â€ť
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.
