Newborn Kitten Wins Powerball Jackpot
News of the rising Powerball prize had the entire country excited last week, and none more so than Roger, a days-old kitten from Florida who zipped out to a local convenience store as soon as he learned to open his eyes.
“Personally, I think he should have focused on eating and getting comfortable on four legs,” says Miranda Chambers, a neighbor. “But he was determined to get that ticket!”
It certainly paid off. Roger is the sole winner of the $590 million jackpot.
“Not bad for being alive less than a week,” says Chambers.
Friends of the kitten say he will use the money to pay off some credit card debt, take care of his family, buy a helicopter, and donate the rest to charity.
