Update on the Cat and Dog Fountain
by Kate Fletcher
On a cold but sunny winter day, the cat and the dog may have been surprised to find themselves hoisted ignominiously by crane from their perch downtown and brought to a church where they will be restored by Jeff Gulick of Timberwolf Restorations LLC. Jeff's studio is in what was formerly the All Saints Parish Church in Housatonic. Well-wishers kept the Cat and Dog company as the town-owned sculpture was carefully prepared for the trip to Housatonic by Thad Tomlinson and Frank Fay of Berkshire Crane & Logistics LLC. We will all miss the Cat and Dog, but we hope they will enjoy being out of the cold. As I left the church, Cat was happily chasing a mouse and Dog was curled up on an elegant antique sofa taking a nap.
Special thanks to Mike Buffoni (Water Superintendent), Hugh Page (Highway Foreman) and Mike Canales (Town Administrator) for their assistance and support with this project!
