Kittens found living in Paradise Valley Mall storm drain

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX - They've been living in a storm drain for three months and now one may is doing whatever he can to get them out.

We're talking about cats -- a whole family.

These kittens were born in the storm drain at the Paradise Valley Mall and Dave Moser says he's not getting a lot of support from the property owners.

"I wanna get 'em outta here.  I have a home for them," said Moser.

Moser is on a mission to rescue the kittens since finding out about them over the summer.

"I just can't leave them down in there. They were obviously born down there -- and if someone doesn't help them, they're probably going to die down there," he said.

Dave says he's been giving the feral kittens and their mother food and water for the past several months -- sneaking it into a grate next to Costco, but says he's been told by mall management and security not to do that anymore.

"He basically told me the same thing.. that if he catches me on the property, trying to put any food or water down or around that.. that he would call the police on me. And I said, 'look I know how to save 'em, it's a very simple thing," said Moser.

The Arizona Humane Society tells FOX 10 the sewer drain the cats are in is too small to put a trap in and they believe the kittens are able to go in and out of the drain.

But Moser believes the kittens are trapped and that's why he is working so hard to try and get them out.

"It's very frustrating. It's very frustrating. Because it's not harming anything to go in and save 'em.. get 'em outta there," he said.

Last year, Dave says he rescued three kittens from the same storm drain with the permission of the former property manager of the mall and that two of them are now his pets.

Right now it's not clear what will happen to the kittens since Dave says he has been told he might be arrested for trespassing if he goes back.
