The official mascot for Westbrook High School is the Blue Blaze. But the school near Portland, Me., might want to think about switching to the Kitty Cats.
OK, that won't have rivals quaking under the Friday night lights, but the name would be appropriate. After all, Simba, a cat, has been roaming the halls of Westbrook for more than a dozen years. Now, in honor of his loyalty, the 15-year-old feline is set to be honored with an art show inspired by his cuddly nature.

The only thing to go to Portland, ME is for..............................................................................................oh, nevermind.
Let’s just say “lobster.”
That be he.
I was a little bit rebellious. My first year of High School I showed up about 20 days.
When the next year started I heard about a school program called Cooperative Education where they helped place you in a job (send you to job interviews with businesses connected to the program) and then you when to school one week and work the next and so on.
I got a job at the library of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett law firm and ran into Cyrus Vance a dozen times. Doesn’t sound like fun but the people working there were super and made it fun. I actually enjoyed those few years. I would highly recommend that program to anyone.
At first the Cooperative Education Program didn’t want me because of my poor attendance record, but a really good guy at the school, Mr. Mann, pulled strings and got me in. I promised I wouldn’t let him down and had perfect attendance.
If I am in the same room that a cat has been in I have an asthma attack. Just sayin’
That's Downeast. Ayuh. ;P
I was thinking about those with allergies...schools get so freaked out with peanuts/peanut butter.....now cats. :P
Lobster and New England Clam Chowder. My parents did a road trip to Maine before kids just for the seafood but gas was under 20. Gallon.
I would have loved high school if there was a kitty in it. closest I got was I was the cougar mascot for a semester.
Of course, the cat would be a big male ginger tabby :-). With fenders!
What a weetie! Beautiful cat.
That should say Sweetie!
Holy cow, would you look at that big gorgeous guy! Love his name, too.
He looks very intelligent and scholarly.
He ought to be, after all that time in school. ;-)
