Dear people of Westfield,

My name is Oreo, and I am the cat who graced the Council meeting last week with my presence. I live across the street, next to St Paul's Episcopal Church.

Thank you for letting me attend the Council meeting. I think you'll agree I was the most beautiful creature present, and certainly more attractive than you bipeds.

My only regret is that you did not give me some food. Smoked salmon is in keeping with a cat of my elite status.

Anyway, thank you for your hospitality. Please look out for me at St. Paul's Blessing of the Animals Festival from 1 - 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 6, outside the church, 414 East Broad St. If you are lucky, I will sign autographs.

Yours adorably,

Oreo
