As much as we like to think the pandemic is behind us, the threat of contracting the virus and winding up in the hospital is still very real. Even with more and more Montanans getting vaccinated each day, cases are still being reported. In fact, According to the Montana Department of Health and Human Services, 813,740 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered and 393,723 Montanans are fully immunized. In Missoula, 119,449 doses have been administered and 58,260 people are fully immunized. Yet, there are currently 732 active cases in the state. 404 cases were reported last week and 466 cases were reported the week before.

One of those cases, happens to be our buddy Bill. He is currently in ICU battling COVID-19. But, he is missing his best friend and partner in crime.

According to a recent post on Facebook

Missoula peeps....help needed, especially in the East Missoula area.
A family friend raised in Missoula and a Sentinel High School graduate, Bill Pederson, needs our help.
He has been admitted to St. Patrick's hospital in the ICU with COVID....he has been living in a white van with his cat Peach Dragonfoot, who he rescued in Georgia and literally brought back to life after she almost lost a leg. The van may possibly still be behind Ole's in East Missoula...hoping Dragonfoot is still in the area. Please see photos...
Please call if found....
