Cloquet firefighters help rescue kittens stuck in camper

Kittens who found their way into a camper in a store parking lot are safe after some help from Cloquet firefighters.

Jodi Carlson of the group Missing Pets In The Northland says the camper’s owner had just driven up from the Twin Cities and stopped at Walmart to do some shopping. They believe the three-week-old kittens’ mother kid them in the camper while he was in the store on Tuesday.

A Cloquet police officer called Carlson for help, but they were not able to get the kittens out, so they called the Cloquet Area Fire District.

The firefighters carefully removed paneling and found two kittens stuck in the insulation. A Walmart employee found a third kitten in the parking lot.

The three kittens have been named Chrissy, Earl, and Stu in honor of the camper’s owner and two of the firefighters.

Carlson said they have already lined up homes for the kittens when they are old enough to be adopted. For now, they are in a foster home.
