Abandoned Kitten Found in Mailbox

A letter carrier in Boston got quite a surprise last week according to an Associated Press article.

Reporter Kelly Burgess writes, "When emptying a city mailbox, the carrier found an abandoned kitten among the envelopes, likely deposited through the drop opening at the top of the box."

Kelly says the 8-week-old, 2-pound kitty, nicknamed "Postina," was unharmed and was turned over to the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Animal Care and Adoption Center.

"Though pet surrender has become more prevalent recently due to financial problems cited by owners, animal abandonment in Massachusetts is a crime punishable by up to a $2,500 fine and five years in prison," according to Kelly.
