“LA Animal Services SMART members Nett and Smitty crawled under a house that was about to get fumigated to rescue a mamma cat named “Mimius” and her four new-born kittens.”

Once mama Mimius was captured and placed in a cage the women searched for her babies and brought them out to safety.

Later that night, SMART received a call from Mimius’ owner, and she and her babies were reunited with their family.
