NORTH CONWAY, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Mount Washington Observatory has welcomed a new member to the staff, Nimbus!
The Gray Shorthair started living at the summit last month and was adopted by staff through the Conway Area Humane Society.
Since the observatory was founded in 1932, cats have always been a staple.
At the end of 2020, the previous cat, Marty, passed away.
“With the passing of Marty in late 2020, we started the search for a new cat knowing it would have big paws to fill,” MWO summit operations manager Rebecca Scholand said. “The summit cat is such a special part of our living environment on the summit, making it feel much more like a home on our week-long shifts.”
Mouth Washington Observatory posted the adoption of Nimbus on Facebook:
MWO marketing and communications director Krissy Fraser said in a release that Nimbus’ journey was quite long; beginning in Oklahoma with the Skiatook Paws and Claws Animal Rescue before being transferred to CAHS.
