A VISIT WITH ERNIE THE CAT: PRICELESS
Ernie has been the "must see" cat of Ashland for over 10 years. With his 20-pound stature, he proudly rules and watches over our store 24 hours a day. We definitely lucked out when he was delivered to us by the local Humane Society in 1992.
Of course when you are this particular, one tends to have their dislikes. We must say Ernie is no different. Here are a few things that DO NOT tickle his fancy.
Animal: Dogs (especially the ones who come up to the window!)
People always ask us why Ernie is so famous. Although we don't have an exact answer, we think it's due to his dubious charm and incredible size. Ernie regularly receives cards and letters from all over the world. He has been on nationally televised newscasts and has been featured in several newspapers across the country. Every October we have a birthday party for him. Although his birthday is officially October 30th, we have his party on the last weekend the Shakespeare Theater is open so everyone can enjoy the event. And what an event it is! One year, over 500 people attended his party.
