Kitten in the wall – Nice story + a writing challenge

This is the story of a kitten rescued from inside a wall over Labor Day weekend.

Certainly the people who reported it and kept calling until something was done to find and rescue it is are heroes to the kitten, but there is a question that remains unanswered: How did the kitten get into the wall.

If there was recent construction on the wall of the building the answer could be simple.  If not, there is an entry point and other animals could wind up in the same place if it is not closed.  This is an issue that needs to be addressed.

It also leads to a story idea:   How did the cat get into the wall?  What else might be in there?

Story challenge:  Anyone interested in trying to write a  story based on that concept and post it for others?  You can post a comment with your story to this blog.
