New Ulm boy gives cats at shelter new furniture
When Jack turned 8 in October, he asked for money instead of toys so he could help others. This holiday season, he walked into the Humane Society with an envelope filled with $110, and told workers he thought the cats could use some furniture.
So officials used the money to buy a cat “treehouse.”
Jill Tostenrud of the Humane Society said that within 30 seconds of getting the treehouse, a handful of felines began climbing all over it. She said the cats just love their new toy and it’s pretty neat that Jack thought of others.
