FINDLAY, Ohio (AP) - An orange cat that got a lot of attention when it was rescued after spending days in an Ohio drainpipe during severely cold weather has recovered and been adopted.

The Hancock County Humane Society’s animal control officer tells The Courier in Findlay (https://bit.ly/1dYswKw ) the new owners promised that the male cat, dubbed Piper, would be kept indoors.

The cat initially refused attempts to lure it out of the pipe with tuna, the classic call of “here, kitty, kitty” and even a cellphone app that meowed. Groundskeepers at a school in Findlay cut through the pipe Jan. 10 to free the cat, which was muddy, emaciated and hypothermic.

A veterinarian says Piper turned out to be a pleasant, happy creature despite the health problems.
