'If Only Cats Could Talk' to be shown Saturday


Hello, friends and neighbors,

Browser, here, to tell you I will be hosting the screening of “If Only Cats Could Talk.”

Don’t miss this. This is stranger-than-fiction, true story about two all-American cats (one of them is yours, truly) and the humans in their lives.

Danish filmmaker Signe Veje came to Pine River during Summerfest of 2012 to film me and my town. This documentary tells my story as well as the story of Frankie, my pen pal, in California.
