A black cat took up residence in a garage in the 900 block of Sherman Farm Road in late November 2017. She has an ear tip, and is a spayed female, about 1-2 years old. According to Burrillville Animal Control, the cat is semi-feral and the party who has been caring for her is now able to handle her.
Anyone who might be missing the cat is instructed to call David at 401-374-2191.
