The Goodwill Store in Huron, Ohio got a bonus this week in a donated sofa.
When the sofa in question began yowling, it took store personnel a few minutes to locate the source.
“We heard meowing and didn’t know where it was coming from,” store clerk Kaila Voight said.
“We finally figured out it was coming from the couch. We removed the cushions and out popped the kitten’s head through a slit in the fabric covering the springs,” she said.
Workers tore apart the couch to be sure no addtional kittens were trapped.
The donor called later, saying she was missing a kitten. When she learned the cat had been located, she gave her permission for a customer to adopt him.
This isn’t the first instance of a couch cat stowaway. In March, Callie Jean was discovered in a thrift store couch after being trapped inside for 12 days, and Autumn the Cat was discovered in a discarded box spring minutes before being dumped in landfill.
REMINDER: When donating getting rid of furniture — especially couches and box springs — thoroughly inspect it and do a kitty count before it leaves your home.
