Catwalk: Sandpoint style

Felines travel in style downtown, at the beach

Forget Paris or Milan; the top catwalks these days are found in and around downtown Sandpoint. Just ask Lila, Jackson, Henry, and Blackberry. The four felines are a regular sight in downtown Sandpoint or City Beach, pulled in a deluxe cat buggy and lying in comfort on plush Alabama blankets. "They get a lot of attention," Patrick Beal said of the four cats during a recent walk with the felines and his wife, Buffy. "We just go along for the ride."
