Cat rescued after 3 winter days in Ohio drainpipe

FINDLAY, OH

The Courier newspaper 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."
