Update on Postina, the Abandoned Drop Box Kitten


I am thrilled to provide an update on our story about Postina, the tiny calico who was unceremoniously abandoned when someone shoved her into the slot of a postal dropbox in Boston.

A New Hampshire postal worker, George Knapp, and his wife, Dani-Jean Stuart, have adopted the two-pound 8-week-old kitten.

According to the MSPCA Animal Care and Adoption Center, Stuart directed a news segment about the kitten’s plight. The kitten was named “Postina” by the MSPCA, but her new parents have rechristened her “P.D.”, for “Postage Due.”

No one has yet been arrested for abandoning the kitten. Pet abandonment in Massachusetts is punishable by up to a $2,500 fine and 5 years in prison.
