Leesburg residents Ron and Dot Gilbert heard meowing coming from their garden. Upon investigation, they found a kitten trapped in the fence. They freed it, but heard more cries. Unable to locate others, the Gilberts called Lake County Fire Rescue. Fire Rescue had to dismantle the fence to reach two more kittens trapped two feet underground, wedged inside a post anchored in cement. Firefighter Valerie Ligi not only rescued the kittens but also adopted one she named Pickles.
