Pet of the Week 'Tuesday' PGB.jpg

MEET TUESDAY, OUR Pet of the Week. When you’re this gorgeous, some days you just have to sit and look at yourself in the mirror.

This beautiful long-haired black cat named Tuesday lives with his family in Vergennes. When not looking in the mirror at himself he enjoys playing with his brother Morton and relaxing in the sun. Tuesday is a super-cuddly cat and loves to be held. We love him very much.

Martha Sanborn and family, Vergennes
