Two kittens trapped inside a bedroom wall were rescued Wednesday night by the Broward Sheriff’s Fire Rescue Engine 14, officials said.

A family at 2861 NW 12 Ct. called the fire department after hearing kittens meowing behind the wall for several days, according to a release.

When the firefighters arrived Wednesday, they used a thermal imaging camera and a stethoscope to locate the kittens, fire officials said.

Authorities said they cut a hole in the drywall and after removing some debris, the tiny kittens dropped down the wall into the hands of the firefighters.

Officials said the kittens were in good shape but were thirsty. The animals were turned over to the family who said they will care for them, the release said.
