The Barker House Inn Cats
We have sad news….Allie, who loved guest and all the attention paid to her, crossed over in May. Mattie, who considered himself THE CAT, crossed over August 11.
Bob and I were so proud of these two special Inn Cats, and all the love and attentions they gave to all who meet them over the past 10 years.
