GOWANDA, NY (WKBW) – Inmates at the Gowanda Correctional Facility are giving back to the community after their feline friend was injured.
Inmate Stephen Pierce said it all started last summer.

“I first saw the little fella out there around July,” Pierce said.
Four small kittens made their home in the inmate’s courtyard and they were an instant hit among the men. One little cat in particular caught Pierce’s attention. He named him Rocky.
“I fell in love with Rocky right away,” Pierce said.
Then, Rocky recently went missing. Pierce said it was an emotional ride.
“They didn’t know where he was, all they heard was meowing. Finally, they spotted him and when they spotted him they couldn’t believe where he was stuck in the razor wired fence. So, then one taller inmate got him down,” Pierce said.
