The cat in the boiler room

I kept telling my roommate that I could hear something that sounded like a kid crying.

The only time I heard it was in the kitchen.

My roommate told me it was probably just a deer outside, even though I didn’t believe him. I knew the sound was coming from inside the home. The other day, my roommate heard the sound while I was still in bed. The boiler is right beneath the kitchen and he went in search of the sound. He found a kitten that couldn’t have been a month old behind the boiler system. She was cold and clearly hungry. He quickly wrapped her up in a small blanket and brought her to me. I tried to feed her warm milk to get her warmed up, however she wasn’t having it. I asked my roommate how she got behind the gas furnace and he had no idea. I kept trying to get warm milk into her tummy while cuddling her to me to keep her warm. My roommate went downstairs to see if there were any tiny holes that she could have gotten through. He found one way in and was worried about other animals getting inside and hanging out by the boiler system. The cat’s eyes were barely open, so she genuinely couldn’t have travelled that far. I sat her down by the air vent and kept her wrapped in the blanket, to keep her warm. I was determined to get her sizzling and keep her safe with me. I have a cat now.
