Ernie, who was once Buddy then Earnest, was an abandoned cat forced to endure life on the streets until the Coalition recently humanely trapped, neutered and vaccinated him as part of our TNR efforts in Beacon. He was clearly far too friendly to be returned to his colony and Caregiver so was placed up for adoption. Ernie now happily lives with Ed the mechanic at his shop where he greets customers on a daily basis. Graham Goodman, one of the Coalition's youngest members, recently enjoyed afternoon snack time with Ernie. The two became fast friends.
