Happy and content

It's been too long since I posted a picture of a cute pet and I'm going through withdrawal. I rummaged around in our archives and found this Picture Perfect photo we ran this spring. Gwyneth Cadwell of Newman Lake submitted this snapshot of Mr. Longtails enjoying a nap on a healthy bed of lettuce during the April showers. I can almost hear the contented purring now.

Picture Perfect is a scrapbook of the people and events in Spokane Valley. We'll publish slice-of-life photographs for free. Just email them in with names and ages of everyone in the photo and information about where and when it was taken. Also include the name and phone number of the person who took the photograph.

Furry hitchhiker on her way home

A truck driver who arrived at the Spokane Valley Target warehouse this week with a shipment from Albany, Ore., didn't realize he had an unauthorized passenger in the back. When he opened the door to unload, a cat dashed out and hid from workers, who called SCRAPS for help.

The cat was caught and taken to SCRAPS, which contacted the Albany Herald in the hopes of finding the owner, according to SCRAPS press release. Against all odds the owner was located and today the cat is leaving town for the trip back to Albany. This time, she gets to ride in front. Photo courtesy of SCRAPS.
