Officials at the Hancock County Humane Society say they're accepting adoption applications and donations to help with medical bills for the male cat, now named Piper.
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.
The Humane Society director tells The Courier newspaper that Piper is an older cat and will need to be kept indoors.
