Barry the Cat Gets Buried at the Beach

Occurred on May 15, 2022 / Linden, Michigan, U

Info from Licensor: "The cat is Barry-Roubaix. We found him as a stray at the Barry-Roubaix Michigan gravel bike race (MGRS) in 2022 and instantly took him home. Our veterinarian estimated that he is 1-year-old. He was in very poor health: ear mites, respiratory infection, fleas; plus he had to be neutered. Adopted strays make the best pets, though. Barry approached us at the race and never left our tent. It was cold and we had a heater inside. My husband finished racing and found Barry cuddling with our 3-year-old son on a fold-up chair in the team tent (Team Consolidated of Flint MI). Instantly, my husband asked, "Are we keeping him?" I said yes. He is great with kids. Barry is my 3-year-old son's best friend and puts up with all of his crap. Barry is harness and leash trained, and that is why he comes to the beach with us (and everywhere else we go). He's something of a local legend. The bike scene loves him and his name.
