Pet of the week, Bertie

pet of week Bertie cmyk.jpg

Burta, a.k.a. Bertie, is a brown tabby shag, but that hardly describes her elegant shimmering coat and bright manner. Seymour Street’s band of young sidewalk travelers declared her the most beautiful cat in the neighborhood, and they would know. She likes stair ball, tether-mouse, and naps. She has gentle affection and a steady purr for all her friends, especially Donna and David, her favorite people for 17 years, and we love our Bertie!
