Ready to go home
Chamber of Commerce summer student Amy Jennison noticed this male cat at the back of the chamber office, hiding under a tree, cold and weak. Executive director Barbara Gare suggested they should take care of the cat, which they believe was in the wild about six weeks. Staff and volunteers have paid for food, upkeep, and a vet checkup. They believe it is someone’s pet; if it’s yours, you can claim it by identifying some unique characteristics.
The chamber staff would like to find the owner soon so the cat, which they’ve named Tuxedo and which has been an attraction for tourists, is at its home as winter approaches and staff levels reduce.
Tourists also brought a trained kitten, which they found in Shipka, to the chamber office. Gare is taking care of the seven-week-old, mostly brown kitten at her home.
If the cats remain unclaimed, any good home would be welcome and can be offered by contacting Barbara Gare at the Grand Bend Chamber of Commerce (519-238-2001).
