Hey there!

2016-02-23 17:28:07.000 – Marty the Cat, Director of Feline Operations


It sure has been awhile since I shared my thoughts here last. I’ve been pretty busy this winter helping out the observers with lots of weather observations. I also enjoy making an appearance around dinner time and entertaining the overnight guests. All of them are so happy to see me and I make new friends with each trip.
I’m really looking forward to the warmer months that lie ahead so I can have a chance to run around outside and frolic among the rocks. I’m also looking forward to the return of the hustle and bustle that the summer months bring. Lots of tourists, hikers, cog railway patrons, and of course the weather enthusiasts that love to come through the Observatory for a tour. I’m looking forward to seeing all of you this summer! That’s all for meow.
