    Our cat loves to party, plus he loves the snow and is interested in joining CARCA. Mittens was wondering about CARCA’s drug policy and if feline applicants would have to submit a urine sample?

    With you 110% until the cat got shot of the cannon. Had to be traumatic and stress on muscles, nerves, and emotions. Shame!! May he use your bed for a litterbox.

    My 14 year-young tabby Uno is catnip-crazy over this program, packed and ready to go with a season’s supply of freeze-dried mice to be hid in the woods for search and rescue practice in between avalanches, but she would like to know if C.A.R.C.A. gives special consideration to candidates with polydactile toes? She claims she can shovel deeper and faster than most other felines, and that raises the recovery efficiency ratio. I wasn’t fully convinced until I went into the garage to grab a shovel to dig my stuck car out of the driveway. By the time I got back, she had power-dug it free. We will complete the application and look forward to further talks with you on becoming part of the team.

    Does Whistler Blackcomb ski area have a chapter?

    If not I will volunteer to start a chapter at Whistler for the safety of the backcountry user.
