Hudson the cat finds new home

The Delta County Independent has been notified that Hudson, the little munchkin cat living at the Cedaredge shelter, has been adopted to a new home.
Hudson was featured in a Sept. 24 article introducing the town’s new animal control officer. Hudson’s curricullum vitae in the story seems to have struck a sympathetic chord with a DCI reader and Hudson had his new home two days later.
Hudson is a munchkin: a cat with a breeding, or genetic, anomaly that produces very short legs.

Coal mining ‘is in the crosshairs’
