A Washington State postman says efforts to save a trapped cat helped him win the lottery.
Joseph Walderr of Tacoma says he was recently delivery mail when heard the sound of a kitten... but couldn't locate the source.
The next day, in the same spot, he heard it again - and discovered the cat stuck in a small space.
After rescuing the kitten, he put the kitten in the pocket of his sweatshirt, where it slept for the rest of his shift," according to Washington's Lottery.
Waldherr said the kitten rescue left him feeling lucky, so he stopped into a convenience store and bought a Hit 5 ticket, where he won a $717,500 jackpot.
Waldherr credited the lucky kitten with his win. He said the feline, now named Peaches, will have a new home at his house.
