My husband found a black, male cat, approximately 1 to 2 years old near Salt Creek, just north of Sweet Springs earlier this week. He is a very tame cat who is quite used to being loved and is litter box trained. He doesn't mind our other cats and dogs. If someone lost this precious pet, please contact Paula Gallup at 660-624-5960 and we will arrange to get him back home.
Thank you for giving us yard of the month. We have being trying hard to have a great yard. Thanks for noticing.
Thank you Kathy Dohrman for inviting me to this page. How exciting! Hello Sweet Springs Friends! 😁
