Best Appearance by a Cat at the Colorado Legislature (2002)


The fur was flying when the still-recovering Westy, a cat set on fire and thrown to the side of the highway by two ne'er-do-wells last year, showed up at the State Capitol to testify for Senator Deanna Hanna's SB 48, which would make cruelty to animals a more serious criminal offense. As if to illustrate the severity of the crime, Westy was more testy than a gun lobbyist whose proposal had just been shot down -- screeching at strangers and spitting at a seeing-eye dog stationed under one chair. Meow.
