Male | 12 years | Snowshoe • Mix


***** PawPaw and his pal, Cheeka, have been with us longer than we would like so they are members of our Lonely Hearts Club and their adoption fee has been reduced to $30 for the pair. *****

Name: PawPaw

Age: Senior (12 years old)

Weight (approx.): 9 lbs

Personality: Hi there! My name is PawPaw and I'm so excited to meet ya! I'm just a quiet, senior kitty looking to find my retirement home with my best friend, Cheeka. We both are sweet kitties looking for a new friend to share our love with! Meeting new friends is pretty neat and can also be a little intimidating at first, because we always want make a good impression! If you give us a little time in a nice, quiet home though, we will surely end up being your BFF!

Medical History: I appear to be a healthy senior cat, and I received a special senior exam at the shelter, but it's always a good idea to set up an appointment with my new vet soon, so that we can make sure to stay on top of any medical issues that may come up.

Adoption Fee: $30 for the pair
