After 3 days stuck in a frozen drainpipe, this cat has a nice warm home

Piper was ‘muddy, emaciated and hypothermic’. But he made it!

A local heard Piper’s cries on Wednesday. People tried to lure him our with by calling, offering tuna, and even using a smartphone app that meowed.

It wasn’t until Friday that groundskeepers at a school cut through the pipe, freeing the male cat.

Piper was muddy, emaciated and hypothermic when he was rescued. He had a broken leg.

There were also other injuries that suggest he’d had a rough time. One vet treating him said: “If they truly have nine lives, he probably has three left.”

However, Piper is now safe. He hasn’t been claimed yet, but a number of people have volunteered to adopt him if no owner comes forward – meaning he’ll definitely be headed to a new home.
