Pet Photo of the Week

“This is Skoshie – her full name is Skoshie Chingo, which we think means little friend in Korean and Japanese. She is a real pal. Skoshie enjoys watching the television show “Animal Planet," and pouncing on her cat-toy mice. One of her favorite tricks (if you are not paying attention) is to stick her paw into a glass of whatever you are drinking and take a sip from her paw. She thoroughly enjoys scratching her favorite chair and steadfastly ignores scratching posts. No matter – she is a sweetie and we dearly love her." Lori Karns, library technician.
