ENTERPRISE — Meritt Dougherty loves cats, and he wants to work with them as a career someday. But his mom, Shawna Dougherty, is allergic to felines. So there can be no cats at home.

To celebrate his 10th birthday, Meritt decided to have a (Mom-approved) “paw-ty” among the adoptable and resident cats at the Wallowa County Humane Society’s ReTail Boutique on Main Street in Enterprise on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2021. He and his friends brought along some gifts for the cats, too. Everyone, including the cats, was a-meowsed and had a paws-atively fun time.
