"Phoebe the pit bull was just sniffing around on her regular morning walk when a meow coming from a pile of trash in an alley got her attention.
`I heard this little meow and walked over to the pile, but Phoebe got right in and then had her nose through a hole in a cardboard box,` said the dog`s caretaker, who asked to be identified only by her first name, Melissa.
`I looked through a little hole made when the kitten apparently tried to escape and saw him inside. I could not believe it.`
Melissa called police and Troy animal control took the small gray cat to the Troy Veterinary Hospital for treatment, said Capt. John Cooney, Troy police spokesman."
