SPOKANE, Wash. - Little did Vickie Mendenhall know that the $27 couch she bought at Value Village in Spokane two weeks ago had a furry surprise: a calico kitty trapped inside.

Mendenhall, who bought the couch when she moved into her new home at 3104 N. Madison St. in Spokane, said she and the other occupants had been hearing the faint sound of meowing repeatedly, but could never find the source. Every time they searched for a cat, the sound stopped.

"Every night we'd hear it and then we'd try to find it, but we couldn't find it," said the 32-year-old mom, who coincidentally works in the cat room at SpokAnimal C.A.R.E.
