Cat-astrophe Averted Here in NYC
Today's NY Times headline is:
The Fraidy-Cat of Hudson Street Is Yanked to Safety
By ANTHONY RAMIREZ and TONI WHITT
The epic search for Molly, the black, 11-month-old fraidy-cat stuck in the wall of a Greenwich village food store for two weeks, ended in jubilation last night after rescue workers spotted her in a small opening and quickly yanked her to safety.
Peter Myers, the owner of the shop Myers of Keswick, at 634 Hudson Street, with his cat Molly. Molly, an 11-month-old black mouser, was trapped between walls for two weeks.
Molly's return came at 10:13 p.m., prompting a crowd of dozens of reporters, photographers and neighborhood residents who had gathered outside the shop, Myers of Keswick at 634 Hudson Street, to erupt in cheers. Rescue workers said they had traced Molly's plaintive meows to an area near the ceiling of the shop, drilled a small hole and spotted her crouched and pinned in a dark crawl space between that building and one next to it.
"I saw her eyes shining in the light," said Kevin Clifford, 33, the worker who pulled her out. "I was calling her, and she was meowing to me. She was scared."
