The Star City has a new feline resident... that may look like a domestic cat...

[SUPER=03-Roanoke ]

But Miko (MEE-co) is anything but. She can be dangerous to people - but she has strong arms that make her particularly ferocious with fish...
In fact, Miko is a predator fishing cat, from Southeast Asia.
She was just recently introduced to the new man-made pond she'll be fishing out of this spring.
