Booger, Kitty and Mousey, along with their friend
With music by Cannonball Adderly
Homeless man now in Santa Barbara. They work State Street every week for
donations. The animals are pretty well fed and are mellow. They are a family.
The man who owns them rigged a harness up for his cat so she wouldn't have to
walk so much (like the dog and himself). At some juncture the rat came along,
and so no one wanted to eat anyone else, the rat started riding with the cat and
often, on the cat. The dog will stand all day and let you talk to him and admire
him for a few chin scratches. The mayor of Santa Barbara filmed this clip and
sent it out as a Christmas card!
