DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Firefighters have rescued a kitten that was trapped inside the wall of a South Florida home, bringing an end to a family’s confusion about where a certain meowing sound was coming from.

Broward County Sheriff’s Office Fire Rescue spokesman Mike Jachles says several firefighters on Monday safely removed the small gray kitten after cutting a hole through the wall in the Deerfield Beach family’s living room. The kitten didn’t appear to be injured.

It’s unclear how the feline became trapped. Jachles says a neighborhood cat must have had a litter in the home’s attic, with the kitten then somehow falling down into the wall.

The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/1qFgsrc ) reports that the family adopted the kitten and named it Hugo, after one of the firefighter’s who rescued it, Hugo de Almeida.
