The Ap-paw-Lachian Trail

On a week-long break in Hanover while hiking the Appalachian Trail, this hiker (trail name Tootsie Roll) and his kitten Duncan (trail name Owl Pellet) have been spotted around campus. Owl Pellet has been hiking the trail on his owner’s back for 10 weeks, starting when he was only two weeks old. He sleeps in the tent at night and sits on his owner’s shoulders while hiking, and has only had one accident. Everyone makes mistakes though, Owl Pellet. Everyone has those days.
