All the cat news fit to print

You expect to get cat news here at the Sandusky Register, and we're giving it to you.

You may remember the sad story of Durango, the cat who languished for months at the Erie County Humane Society after being found under a Dodge Durango by one of the shelter's employers. As I wrote in an earlier blog posting, Durango was adopted out, but returned by a family that complained all he wanted to do was sit in a little girl's lap.

I have good news. Durango found a home when he was adopted during the society's Northcoast Animal Expo last weekend. Animal lovers also carted off three kittens, a dog and a guinea pig named Henry.

"He went to two delightful young women who wanted a cat to keep their cat company and they LOVED the idea that he was a lap cat," said Amy Porter, director of the humane society. "Imagine that."

Bonus cat news: My wife the librarian, who has read an advance copy, says a new book called "Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World" is going to be the next national cat sensation. Ann once helped rescue and take care of a library cat named Catalog at the Rocky River Public Library, so she's well-qualified to review library cat books. (Follow the link for photos of Dewey and Catalog). If Dewey becomes a household word you heard it here first. The book is released Sept. 24.
