After making sure there were no other kittens or a mama cat in the wall too, Holcomb packed up her gear and headed off, leaving the kitten with the homeowners, who had promised to find him a forever family. But she couldn't get the tiny critter off her mind.
"That little kitten was all I could think about the rest of the night at work," she said, "and I even thought of a perfect name: Wall-E."
The next day Holcomb asked the family if they had found a home for him yet, and they said no, but that he was hers if she wanted.
"I immediately turned around and headed home with the little guy sleeping in my lap, nestled inside a sock," she said.
