Bob Durick of Struthers "found" Ella when he bounced her under his truck in New Castle, Pa., in March 2009. She was just a kitten and was living on the street. Although she was missing some fur and was a little bloody, she ate some of his leftover spaghetti, climbed into his truck and fell asleep on his lap. Several minutes later, dinner was all over his lap and front seat. Apparently she was allergic to Italian food.
