Three kittens are safe after being trapped in an apartment mail center for four days.

Mission Hills Apartments in New Braunfels received an emergency maintenance request after a resident heard the kittens crying from the mail center.

New mailboxes had just been installed, trapping the kittens.

Maintenance workers struggled for four hours before successfully freeing the kittens.

All 3 of the kittens appear to be healthy despite surviving four days without food and water.
