Pet of the Week
photo: towncrier
When Aurora's people moved away, she looked so hard for them that she went cross eyed. And they never came back! Hard to believe they could abandon this gorgeous, 6-year-old spayed, tiger-point Siamese cat with a luminous silvery-gray coat. Aurora's trying to cope. Even though she gets a little scared and sometimes sees double, she has a clear vision of someday being a spoiled lap cat in a home where she will be appreciated and loved.

If you would like to adopt a pet, call or stop by the Homer Animal Shelter on the Homer Bypass across from the post office. The shelter is open seven days a week, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Call 235-3141, or e-mail, or visit the shelter on the Internet at
