Cat Rescue-Drainpipe_Kada

FINDLAY, OHIO: A cat that spent at least three winter days in a northwest Ohio drainpipe has been rescued after initially refusing attempts to lure it out with tuna, the classic call of "here, kitty, kitty" and even a cellphone app that meowed.

The Courier newspaper (http://bit.ly/1d9g89t ) reports a resident in Findlay heard the cat's cries Wednesday. Groundskeepers at a school cut through the pipe Friday to free the orange cat, which was muddy, emaciated and hypothermic.

Seniors, disabled get help feeding furry friends

By SUE MANNING, Associated Press Published: December 26, 2013
