Despite a questionable forecast for last Saturday morning, the rains stopped and we had a dry hike. The trail was very challenging in terms of rocks to step over, lots of puddles, and steps to climb. Everyone certainly had their workout for the day!
We came across a 5 month old stray cat two miles into the remote trail, deep in the Niagara Gorge. So Deborah and Bob Kosobucki ’73 carried it out, and took it to the SPCA. During the drive, the Kosobuckis decided to adopt him, and now have him at home in foster status before formal adoption.
As tempting as the name Ezra was, Deborah and Bob have named him Kitty. After just a few days of training, Kitty has already shown himself to be smart by cat standards (and very affectionate!). Kitty is in training so that he will respond to voice commands, especially ‘no’, and so that he won’t scratch or bite. Bob’s a bit of a ‘cat whisper’ and is working to establish trust with Kitty.
A big thank you to Bob Kosobucki ’73 for not only leading a challenging hike, but for taking in Kitty as well!
