Pet of the Week
photo: towncrier

Some cats are deep thinkers. They'll hide away under the bed or in dark corners trying to figure out the meaning of life. But Morrie is a simple cat. He doesn't think about how to prevent war or solve the world's problems. He's just thinking about you. He wants you to touch him, to pet him, to hold him, to love him. That's what he wants, that's all he wants and that's all he'll ever need. Mortimer's all white and he's all right!

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