From time to time, stories hit the news about people willing some or all of their estates to their pets. Oregonian reporter Tom Hallman Jr.
brings us the tale of farmer John Bass, who left a barn to his beloved Kitty Kat.
The kitty has since passed, and now the barn is now being moved to the property of a person who plans to preserve it. This story takes place in Tangent, a tiny little town near Corvallis (a beautiful Willamette Valley town where I lived for 2 years).
My favorite line in Hallman's story:
"The cat had been an outdoor cat," Edwards said. "After Mr. Bass died people were afraid someone might kidnap Kitty Kat for ransom. So we had to keep the cat indoors."
