Two cats' fates on Halloween: One good, one not

By Tami Wilson

On Halloween night two young cats, one gray and white tabby, and one mostly gray tabby, with white paws, were on the Square.

Two young boys caught the mostly gray tabby, and were trying to figure out the safest thing to help it survive. They were in front of the funeral home, as we were leaving.

The cat with more white on it, had gotten hit on the Square, and was dead. I didn't want to leave it there to get run over more, so I picked it up, and my dad will see that it gets buried.

If anyone is missing similar cats, or knows who they might belong to, I hope this information may be helpful.

I don't know the identity of the two young boys, or what they wound up doing with the cat, but they seemed to care about it and have its best interest in mind. I really hope the other cat is safe and sound. - Tami Wilson
