'If Only Cats Could Talk' to be shown Saturday in Pine River

Browser, the Pine River Library cat, stars in a documentary about two cats in the heart of America.

Danish filmmaker Signe Veje visited Pine River last summer to film Browser because he has a GPS on his collar. The film, “If Only Cats Could Talk,” also tells a story about Frankie, a cat from California who was lost. Most of the filming was done in Pine River and Huntington Beach, Calif.

This is a true story about two all-American cats and the humans in their lives. The director has been entering the documentary into film festivals around the world.

The Pine River Library will premier the film at 3 p.m. Saturday, June 22, at The Warehouse in Pine River. Donations for Paws & Claws Animal Shelter or the Food Shelf will be taken at the door.

For more information, contact the library at 587-3107.

Browser found his “forever” home and wants other homeless cats and dogs in Cass County to also find theirs. Support Paws & Claws so the shelter can be built: Paws & Claws Animal Shelter, 501 First St. S., Hackensack, MN 56452; 218-675-7297;;
