Simba the cat is a 15 year old ginger tabby who lives near Westbrook High School in Westbrook ME, where he has been a familiar sight at over the past 12 years. Simba visits regularly and is welcomed by administrators, teachers and students. Superintendent Marc Gousse commented on Simba’s presence at school, telling Steve Minich of Channel 8 news, “Animals are very warm. They’re calming. They bring a sense of peace.”
Simba is being honored as the subject of this year’s student art show at the school.
