I adopted Ernie from the Heartland Humane Society as a kitten. He was a special kitty from the beginning as he was polydactyl, having 8 toes on his front feet and 6 on the back. Ernie loved to snuggle with every human he met and befriended every other cat, even my old grumpy cat Emma. He loved to run around in the backyard and chase bugs and learned several tricks including jumping through a hoop! He even came in to visit the OSU Dean’s Office in his pumpkin outfit one year. He passed away much too soon but will never be forgotten!

A donation was made in Ernie's memory and the memorial was created on October 18, 2017.
