We had a beautiful snow white kitty named Winter on the show today. She's a lap cat who loves to cuddle. Winter is spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated.
Winter's Story from Animal Allies:
Winter is a gentle 8 1/2 year old cat. She has a beautiful snow white coat just like her friend Mirom, who came with her to Animal Allies.
She is from a previous home that could no longer keep her due to her prior owners medical issues. She is now looking for the loving home that she deserves.
Winter can be playful and enjoys string toys and laser lights. She is reported to get along well with cats and dogs.
Winter would love a comforting home with her friend for life Mirom. They both get along so great and would appreciate to have each others companionship.
Winter has been spayed microchipped and is vaccinated.
If you would like to get to know Winter and Mirom better, come and see her at Animal Allies Duluth at 4006 Airport Road

Beargrease 2015: Crossing the Finish Line
For first-time mushers and veterans, there's just something about crossing that Beargrease finish line. Erin Altemus, who took fourth place in the marathon, said it's the same for the dogs. "There is a psychological thing about that," she said. "They sort of understand that they're at the end."
