Kittens found in Merritt Island office ceiling

- Quiet meows could be heard at Specialized Medical Inc. in Merritt Island.

Dr. Cathy de Bengson was working in the office when a patient let out a scream.

"I came out here and she's jumping up and down. And I said, 'What happened?' She says, 'A cat dropped on my back.'"

The kitten made a soft landing on the floor.

Pretty soon, rescuers were able to get the kittens in a trap, so their mother would safely be caught.

"All this time these kittens were sitting right above my head in the office under the ceiling tile," Bengson said. "I had heard some meows, but I thought I was imagining things."

Sara Traylor, who works at Coastal Animal Hospital in Rockledge, came to pick up the kittens and their mother.

She says they'll spend a few days with her before the mother cat gets spayed.

Then, they will all go to foster homes in hopes of finding permanent ones.
