themed jersey.

The ‘Cats will temporarily change their name to the “Tri-City SmellyCats” for “The One with the Friends

live here,” said Kyla Manny, an MS Society representative. “We are thankful for the opportunity to
continue to work with the ValleyCats to raise money and defeat a terrible disease.”
