One of the best-beloved pets in Everglades City was “Jitters, the furry white Bichon Frises doggie who made friends everywhere and left us at age 15. He adored his kittens, who were roommates and soul-mates. He idolized his human companion who described him as “my pal” – they galluted around together and took vacations to the beach where the doggie rolled in the sand while the human shuffled in the surf searching for shells. Donations in Jits’ memory and to his kitty cousins, who miss him terribly, can be made to the local 501(c)(3) animal charity: Feral Felines, Inc., P.O. Box 564, Chokoloskee, FL, 34138.
