Wednesday’s Pic:   “I had a cute cat come to my back door this morning..I live on Shaughnessy St. & Welcher in South Port Coquitlam. I managed to get a couple of pictures. I don’t know if it is a stray or just out for a walk around.I gave it a tin of cat food..which the cat ate. The cat wanted to come into my house..but I have a cat & they started to growl at each other..so I closed the door. Please contact me at lopocobc@yahoo.ca if this is your baby.”   www.facebook.com/MissingPetsInBc/
