Cat dropped in mailbox adopted _ by postal worker
BOSTON — A New Hampshire postal worker is getting his own special delivery.
George Knapp and his wife, Dani-Jean Stuart, of Weare, N.H., have adopted the two-pound, 8-week-old kitten that was dropped in a public mailbox in Boston.
The MSPCA Animal Care and Adoption Center says Stuart directed a television news segment about the kitten, which the organization dubbed “Postina.” The couple has renamed their new pet P.D., for “postage due.”
A U.S. Postal Service letter carrier found the kitty earlier this month amid dozens of envelopes and packages. She likely was stuffed through the mailbox’s small opening and dropped several feet onto the mail below.
Animal abandonment in Massachusetts is punishable by up to a $2,500 fine and 5 years in prison.
