Kitty-Wampus is one of the kittens available for adoption after police in Pulaski removed the four cats from an apartment where two people were making meth.

PULASKI CO., Va. -

Police say four kittens are victims of the recent meth lab case that took place on June 21 at 302 North Washington Avenue.

Police say the kittens were in the apartment where two people were making the drug. Dangerous chemicals are needed to make meth, and the chemicals give off fumes harmful for people and animals.

On Tuesday, officers from Pulaski Police Department removed the four cats from the apartment. Residents of the building said the suspects had been living in the apartment with the kittens for an entire month without water or electricity while manufacturing meth, according to a news release.

A neighbor returned the kittens to police after he/she was unsuccessful at finding new homes for the kittens.

Police took them to a vet for examination and treatment, including decontamination.

They appear to be healthy now.

The Pulaski County Humane Society is currently accepting adoption applications and donations for the kittens.

The investigation is ongoing, and additional charges are pending in reference to the animals.
