Finally, 101 days later, the family got a call from Ben Lepe, a dog trapper who was able to catch Kingston and took him to a rescue group called Friends of Camp Fire Catsaccording to KXTV.

The Ballejos think Kingston was able to survive for the more than three months since they last saw him by eating skunks, the television station reported.
