The cat's meow


In Spokane, Wash., Vickie Mendenhall thought she’d gotten a great deal by paying only $41 for a used couch. But then she and her boyfriend Chris Lund kept hearing a strange, high-pitched noise when they sat down on it to watch television, reports the Spokesman-Review. After a couple of days, Lund finally lifted up the couch and found the source: a cat, who was trapped inside it. The cat — named Callie — was owned by the man who’d donated the couch, and he had been wondering where his pet had gone.
