Are you missing an orange and white cat? One has been living on and around our back yard deck since last August. He's an affectionate kitty and we've been keeping him fed, watered, and sheltered. (We took him to the Humane Society recently where a vet determined that he's a neutered male.) Our previous efforts to find his owner via newspaper ad, Craig's List, and calls to the Humane Society and Friends of Ferals didn't pan out so we're trying again. Please call Ginny and Larry White at 231-1562 if he sounds like your cat.
Lost a Pewter Platter? Someone left a pewter platter at the 12th Night Cocktail party at the home of Sally Gleason. Please call Sally at 238-6876 if the platter belongs to you.
