There are five cats that have the basement of the old Carr's building pretty much to themselves.
The cats wound up in the basement after owner Ken Mistler sold his pet store on East Main Street and the new owners wanted to get out of the cat sale business. Mistler's wife, Andrea, set up the cozy basement apartment and she ensures all of their needs are met.
They have plenty of places to climb and lounge. There's even a ramp to a cat gate that allows them outdoor time in a fenced-off area behind the Carr's building.
Andrea takes care of the cats and besides feeding them and keeping the litter boxes clean, she gives them plenty of affection.
For the cats, the living arrangement is probably more like a penthouse than a basement.
