    Cat Fine after NYC Rescue

    Molly purrfectly fine after NYC rescue

    Associated Press

    NEW YORK - She's not stuck in a wall anymore, but Molly the cat is as curious as ever, and still considerably famous. Six months after the black cat was rescued from the innards of a Greenwich Village building, her guardians say she's adjusting well to her freedom and getting visits from tourists and celebrity-hounds.

    Molly, now 18 months old, spent 14 days in April trapped in the walls of the 157-year-old building, which houses Myers of Keswick, the British specialty foods deli where Molly lives.

    Rescuers used drills, miniature cameras, and a raw fish to lure Molly out. A pet psychic even tried to help, and the drama got international attention. In the end, a volunteer pulled the cat from a crawl space after rescuers drilled and hammered-out bricks in the cellar.

    Enough people have stopped by Myers of Keswick to see Molly since that Ben Allen, a deli employee, said he's considering printing T-shirts that declare "I met Molly at Myers."

    "She's just fine," said Allen, 34. "If she was older, 14 days in a hole would have finished her off, but she was young enough to bounce back from anything."

    The building, pockmarked from holes Molly's rescuers created trying to find her, has been repaired thanks to more than $1,000 in donations to a fund created in her name.

    Molly's adventures may not be over. Allen said that at least once he caught her peering in the same hole she entered before her 14-day ordeal.
