 Arizona Humane Society staffers did not have to go far to rescue a tiny kitten in distress and gather up the rest of his litter to place them in foster care on Saturday.

Staff and volunteers at the Arizona Humane Society’s Campus for Compassion in Phoenix heard cries coming from somewhere in the building Saturday afternoon. The cries came from the adoption area, but weren’t coming from any of the cats.

Emergency Animal Medical Technician Andy Gallo set out to invistigate and made the rescue. He climbed up into the rafters and spotted the little 5 week old black kitten down at the base of a column.

He cut through the wall at the base of the column and brought the kitten to safety.

Kitty and his three siblings were born on the roof of the facility to a feral or stray cat. AHS rescued the entire litter and placed them in a foster home for basic care and socialization after being checked by a vet at AHS’ Sunnyslope Campus.  Thee kittens were in good condition and appeared to be semi-feral.
