Kitten survives 6 days in duffel bag, man charged

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. - Two maintenance workers were testing and reprogramming garage door openers at an apartment complex Thursday when they heard a quiet, muffled meowing in one of the garages.

They looked in the garage and pinpointed the sound to a large, heavy canvas duffel bag. The workers unzipped the bag not knowing what to expect when they saw a second black duffel bag fully zipped.

When they finally opened the second bag they found a scared kitten. They gave the kitten a bath to remove all of the feces and urine it was covered in and called SCRAPS to pick the kitten up.

"This kitten was very lucky to be found at 11 this morning, otherwise it probably would have died today," said Animal Protection Officer Nicole Montano. She continued "we are thankful to those who rescued this kitten from what would have been a horrific death."

The kitten was affectionately named "Duff" by the heroes who rescued him and who also plan on adopting Duff from SCRAPS. Duff is available for photo opportunities at SCRAPS.

Donivan Crews was charged criminally with confinement in an unsafe manner. He admitted to SCRAPS that he had placed the kitten in the duffel bag six days ago.
