    hi there-
    Just want to say that I’ve been training my own cat, Henry James, to do avalanche rescue work as well. I leave his favorite cat toys under the eaves of the house and when the snow falls off, Henry James and I go to work. Henry James is a white Persian and many people think the long haired cats aren’t hard working but they are completely wrong. He is especially good at smelling because of his smooshed-in face characteristic of his breed. In summer, I maintain his avi skills by letting him catch mice and birds.
    Keep up the good work!

Feel free to submit any photos or vidoes you may have and will feature them here on the site! Also, stay tuned as we begin to provide information and resources for CARCA candidates. You rock!
