Partnership is pet purr-fect – Superior Telegram

The partnership between a Superior-based animal rescue and Petco of Duluth is helping cats like Petunia find adoptive homes. Saturday, the black and white cat plopped to the floor of the store in its harness, ready for some petting despite an energetic Labrador retriever named Gunner playing nearby.

The 2-year-old cat gets along well with dogs, according to Matt Nesshengel, executive director of Critter Harbor.

“She loves laying in the sun,” he said, and playing with her rope toy.

Thanks to the new cat habitat at Petco, 903 W. Central Entrance, the feline may soon be adopted. The habitat, which can house up to six cats, was one of about 40 that opened nationwide in September for a three-month trial.
