THEY AIN’T KITTING! Contestants receive their cats at the Quisenbach County Cat Carry Contest, kicked off Thursday at the Marla Gooch Memorial Community Complex in Danube. At left, Danube Mayor Meice Finch reads the governor’s proclamation establishing the remainder of Winter 2012 “Quisenbach County Cat Carry Days.” Full story, with additional photos, page A18.
This is the 24th year of cat carry, and everyone just gets the biggest kick out of it. I donated my cat, Tabatha; you can see her in this shot. (Arlo Fontaine’s gonna carry her. He’s good.) See? She’s waving at me, at the camera! Meow!
