Meet 15 years old tabby cat Simba. He belongs to local resident Eileen Shutts. Simba has greeted high school students in Maine for more than a decade. Staff have given him full permission to roam the halls. Simba first came to the school 13 years ago. He is very punctual. Teachers say he visits daily, at 7 a.m. sharp. The first thing he does is visit Superintendent’s office, where he gets some cuddles. Then move towards the kids to see. It’s a welcome intrusion, however. The school has even planned an April 4 art show in Simba’s honor. Simba has won the hearts of everyone around.
We are sharing a video below in which Westbrook High School senior Kim Larley says, “He’ll show up in class and sit on people’s text books and just intrude.” Gousse says in the video, “I think he probably knows he’s liked and loved, and it’s mutual.” Watch!
