Willow, a cat who wandered away from the Squire family's home in Broomfield five years ago, turned up on East 20th Street in New York City yesterday -- and she's not telling how she got there. That's the kind of mystery capable of creating the next Meme Cat Superstar. But does she have what it takes to travel the cyber-world like she did the United States? Judge for yourself below.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
