    This week's pick of the litter is an orange cat. Ritz is around two years old, and is probably best suited for a home where he is the only cat with older people. He's friendly and even tried coming back to the station with our photographer. You can give Ritz a new home, or any of the other pets from BENCHS by calling them at 625–6373. --KEYC News 12
