The next time you find yourself in Tennessee, plan a stop at the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum to spend some face time with resident cat, Kitty Roy!
The handsome orange kitty's story was recently featured on WBIR, where they reported on how the 10-year-old cat's presence has made him a popular staff member, and a social media sensation. In addition to patrolling the grounds, Roy (as his close, personal friends call him), enjoys napping, dropping in on weddings, and being dressed up in cute outfits.
The dapper tabby has also developed quite a following with the ladies, but as Grounds Manager Mathew McMillian explains, "Ray does have a female fan base, but he doesn't really know what to do with it."
Kitty Roy and Sage
In case you can't make it out to Knoxville, the botanical garden regularly posts pics of the puss on Facebook, where they also recently announced that he has been joined by a brand new grounds-kitty, named Sage!
Knoxville Botanical Garden is located at 2743 Wimpole Avenue, Knoxville, TN.
