Socket lives at the Orchard Mesa True Value Hardware store. He likes to snooze wherever a ray of sunshine can be found in the store. John Liberg, store manager, is shown at far right.

Working cats

Felines make several Grand Valley businesses their business

Spooky has no official list of duties, but occasionally she can be bothered to do a little door greeting. If she feels like it.
OK, maybe she’s actually just looking out the window at life and pigeons passing by, but sometimes she does that by the front door, so let’s count that as a greeting to customers entering Seasons to Follow, 612 Main St.
She is irresistibly, almost cartoonishly cute, with jade green eyes and downy-soft gray fur and a tiny, tiny patch of white on her tummy that looks like a belly button. Proceed with caution if you want to tickle said belly button, because she’s probably sprawled on the front counter if you are seeing her tummy and she gets frisky on the counter.
It is extremely difficult to resist rubbing her tummy, though, so perhaps her list of duties also includes enticing and reflex testing. Can you snatch your hand away before she gets you?
As one of the area’s “working” cats, she takes her work seriously. Ish. She takes it seriously-ish. When she’s not sleeping or sauntering around.
