Alexandria’s Mysterious Leprecat Hopes to Get Lucky and Adopted for St. Patrick’s Day

Harmony is the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria’s friendly mystery cat and this weekend she’s showing solidarity with her canine cousins in promoting the St. Patrick’s Day Fun Dog Show.

“Everyone’s getting into the mood for the Fun Dog Show, even Harmony, who’s happy to show off her St. Patrick’s Day spirit with a hat custom-made for her adorable head,” said Gina Hardter, spokesperson for the AWLA.

Harmony is a three-year-tabby who is something of a socialite at the AWLA (4101 Eisenhower Avenue), according to Hardter.

“[She’s] always at the front of her kennel to make new friends,” Hardter said. “Harmony traveled to Alexandria all the way from West Virginia and can’t wait to get a taste of city life, starting with this little St. Patrick’s Parade she’s heard a thing or two about.”

The AWLA and the Ballyshaners will host the 2020 Fun Dog Show tomorrow (Friday) at 11 a.m. Dogs can be pre-registered online or registered at Market Square (301 King Street) beginning at 10:45 a.m.

Harmony will have to miss out on the parade, Hardter said it’s a dogs-only affair, but she’s hopeful the curious kitty will be in a new cozy home by then.
