Animal Allies: Thurstan

Posted at: 09/20/2012 8:45 AM

Fans of the classic sitcom "Gilligan's Island" will recognize where the name of this kitty comes from.

Sarah Ojard from Animal Allies stopped by with a kitten named Thurstan on Good Morning Northland Thursday. And this cat took a liking to meteorologist Ben Dery.

Thurstan came from a previous owner with two other litter mates, Ojard said. He is about 15-months-old and is available at the Duluth shelter.

Coming up on Sept. 29, Animal Allies will be having a big event at Petco in Duluth. The majority of the shelter's animals will be available there. Discounted adoption fees are available and Petco is offering free grooming.
