Short Tails – A Howling Good Show

On Friday April 25, local thespians put on a wonderful show at our Short Tails event. Deborah Hammond directed and performed along with Catherine McNabb, Marshall Brennan, and Andrew Tree. Highlights of the program included the thoughts of Henri, le Chat Noir, poems by distinguished cat poets such as Shakespeare’s cat, Longfellow’s cat, Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s cat, and Kipling’s cat, and dog stories by Mary Oliver and James Herriot. All the dogs who attended with their people were on their best behavior with lots of wagging tails. Everyone enjoyed home-made treats and cat owners could take special treat bags for their stay-at-home cats. Pet Pals wishes to thank the actors for contributing their time and talent to the event and everyone who attended to make the evening a success. We also thank the Port Townsend Friends of the Arts for their support of this show.
