Pet of the Week
photo: towncrier

Here he comes to save the day! MK (or "Mighty Kat," as his friends call him) is a large, 11-year-old, neutered, orange-and-white cat with lots of extra toes. Don't think he's an old geezer at 11, because MK is still going strong as a feline action hero! He's been around the block a time or two, and he and his buddies Underdog and Mighty Mouse have yet to find a mission impossible.

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
