A kitten that got her head stuck in a hole at an Oregon RV dealership three months ago has been adopted by a Seattle couple.

The Humane Society of Central Oregon rescued 7-week-old Lennox when she got her head stuck in the hole under an HVAC unit.

The Humane Society's Lynne Ouchida says a Poulsbo couple - Val and Donn Martinson - saw the story of Lennox on KING 5 News and called the station.

"She then tracked us down and sent us an application," Lynne said.

The feral kitten was in foster care with Ouchida for three months to learn some social skills.

When Val and Donn learned last week that Lennox was ready to go to a new home they hopped in their car and drove down to Bend.

"They wanted the cat so bad they rearranged their plans and came on down," Lynne said.

"You could feel the connection when she walked in," she said.

The kitten is now at home with Val and Donn in Poulsbo.

"She is very, very affectionate," Val says. "I took her in for her wellness visit to the vet and everyone was so charmed by her."

“The connection made through a news story was amazing to me,” said Lynne. “Who would have known this kitten from Bend, Oregon would be sleeping in Seattle?”

A cry for help



Success!
