Scooby and Penny
The HSoMC 2023 cat mascots are Scooby and Penny, owned by the Grekowicz family. They describe getting their cats as a “funny story.” Both had always wanted to get a cat, especially an orange cat. One day while checking out at a Walmart, they were casually asked by the cashier if they’d like two kittens, brother and sister, both orange and white. As soon as the Grekowicz’s met the kittens their hearts melted, and they immediately brought them home. Penny and Scooby have been members of the family since 2019.
Scooby is described as a foodie who is a big boy and is probably the reason timed feeders exist. He enjoys supervised time outside, and like all good cats, he enjoys sleeping. Penny is the more energetic sibling, always in “predator mode” watching birds at the feeder and chirping at squirrels in the yard. She loves attention and will find a lap to snuggle when she’s ready to settle down. Both cats are incredible special and have their own shining personalities.
The Grekowicz family is honored to have Penny and Scooby as the HSoMC mascots because they wanted to support the shelter, but also wanted to show off their beautiful cats to our community!
