Pet Photo of the Week

“This is Peter in March 2006. We think he was born in July 2005, so he's about 8 months old. His mother was a feral cat hanging around my sister's house in Yakima. She managed to capture Peter and two siblings. The siblings were cuter than him, if you can believe that, and found homes very quickly. I bonded with him, and eventually took him home to be my cat in Edmonds." Phil Rand, senior systems analyst, Computer and Information Systems.
