You may have seen Joshua Snow as he stretches his neck so the wind can hit his face while riding through Sedona on the trolley, or maybe you have seen him strutting around art galleries indifferent to all the attention his loyal fans bestow upon him.

Sedona’s famous cat Joshua Snow poses Friday, March 15, in Sedona for the Humane Society of Sedona’s 2014 Woof N Purr Calendar. The Humane Society will have calenders for both cats and dogs. The deadline to submit photos of your pet is Sunday, June 30.Who is this local celebrity? None other than Joshua Snow, a 15-year-old Persian cat. Joshua has had his picture taken with more than 50 Sedona artists. In addition to his fame in Sedona, Joshua has also had experience working as a therapy cat in California at a state hospital one day each month.

“Joshua is such a well-behaved cat. He is even invited into the glass gallery,” his owner and Sedona resident Carol Gandolfo said. To say Gandolfo is a cat lover would be an understatement. This becomes apparent as one watches her feed her cat baby food with a silver spoon.  Five other Persian cats ranging in age and color meander around the Italian-style home curious as to why Joshua is getting so much recent attention.
