Cat Rescued After 3 Winter Days In Ohio Drainpipe (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) — 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.

The male cat has been named Piper. It has a broken leg and other injuries signaling it's had a rough time lately. But things are looking up, with a number of people volunteering to adopt if it goes unclaimed.

One veterinarian assessed the cat this way: "If they truly have nine lives, he probably has three left."
