Budda was found as a stray and he wasn’t very good at it, nor did he like it. He was dirty and very hungry and skinny. It was obvious he was once someone’s cat as he was very affectionate and seemed to be OK with children. Veterinarian’s estimate of Budda’s age is about 7 years old. Budda is a laid back and gentle boy. He loves belly rubs and seems to be good with other cats. It isn’t known if he’d enjoy the company of a dog. Budda has gotten his teeth cleaned, he’s neutered, up to date on vaccinations, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $85.

The trio, comprised of up-and-comer runners Samuel Van Alstine, Noah Werbelow and local running coach and competitor Clint “Flash” Santoro, ended up in Jerome on the same day with similar goals — run up the hill, survive, and finish as quickly as possible. This challenging course, to put it mildly, sees a rise of 1,000-plus feet in elevation, starting at just under 5,000 and finishing at close to 6,000 feet above sea level.
