This week's Pet of the Week is making a return trip to the Town Pages. Bonnie is a beautiful 1-year-old cat who needs an owner who can be patient with her. It takes a week or two for her to get comfortable with new people and seek them out, but once she does she is very affectionate. Bonnie is spayed and up to date on her shots. The cost to adopt her is $30. Call 952 200-6781 for more information.
Rosemount Parks and Recreation has changed the phone number for its round-the-clock information line. The new number is 651-322-6020.
