Thomas: The Paws Report, April 1

Thomas

Today on The Paws Report:

Three-year-old Thomas is a beautiful black domestic short-hair mix. He’s the first to greet you in the cat colony and the last to leave. If you could just give him a scratch on his back by his tale, that would be great. Thomas is a lap kitty, and will want to hang out with you on the couch or while you work on the computer. When Thomas has had enough loving, he will be happy to play, but play isn’t his top priority. His top priority is investigating what you are doing that could be so interesting that you stopped paying attention to him. Thomas is sweet and loving and waiting for the perfect forever home. He’s neutered, micro-chipped and up-to-date on his vaccinations. Come meet him today at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus, 241 Steedly Drive. For more on Thomas or any of our adoptable pets, please call 502-366-3355 or visit kyhumane.org.

One of those songs is called “Boys In The Street” about growing up with a homophobic step-father. It’s a very powerful song and displays the expert craftsmanship of this up and coming songwriter.

The Louisville Leopard Percussionists have spawned yet another great drummer to go pro and this time a very high profile indeed with Hannah Welton. She is the drummer in Prince’s band 3rd Eye Girl. Hannah was born in Louisville then moved to Chicago when she was 12. Not only does she have great stories to tell about her life so far, but also a great attitude about life in general. We spoke with Hannah right before the 4 sold-out shows she’ll be doing with Prince at the Louisville Palace this weekend.
