Photographer Rescues 4-Week-Old Kitten Stuck in Walls of Abandoned Hospital


Heartwarming video from Viral Hog shows the touching moment a photographer saves a tiny kitten that was trapped inside the walls of an abandoned hospital.

Josh Goldberg was taking photographs inside what was once Leonard Hospital in Troy, New York when he heard strange cries coming from somewhere in the hospital's upper floors.

"I realized there was a kitten trapped on the third floor, but couldn't quite figure out where; at first I thought he was in the heating ducts," Goldberg said.

Instead, the poor little guy was hoeplessly trapped inside a wall, where he would have almost certainly died without help.

"It was getting late and I realized I needed a proper ladder, so I went and bought one at the 24 hour Walmart.

"As soon as I was up on the ladder, I could see over the wall and there he was! A tiny 4 week old kitten," Goldberg said.

Goldberg was able to cut a hole in the drywall and pull out the kitten.

"He was too small to leave behind hoping his mother was still around, so I brought him home: Leonard the Kitten," Goldberg said.
