Housing justice activist Cameron Whitten spent the morning making conversation with all sorts of people who turned up at city hall to discuss the just-announced end of his 55-day hunger strike. But Whitten had a friend to keep him company throughout: A giant fuzzy cat he's named Hungry.
"A homeless girl kind of dumped her on me," says Whitten.
The cat has been living at city hall with Whitten and the other protesters for about a month, since day 20 of the hunger strike. The adorable creature loves rolling around in the organic kale beds that surround city hall's Liberty Bell replica.
