**SAFE 09/17/2017** Beginner-rated 13-year-old Pumpkin was good with young kids, but when his former owner became ill, he was returned to the ACC. This neutered by has volunteer comments as gorgeous as he is, and needs a lifesaver to step up for him tonight! A volunteer writes: It’s Pumpkin season! Pumpkin, an orange tiger tabby, is one big boy. Weighing in at 19 pounds, this gentle giant has a king-sized heart to match. Big golden eyes and a rust colored nose complete the package, making him utterly adorable. He checked me out with a thorough sniff-down. Once I passed inspection, this inquisitive fellow started to purr, giving me cheek rubs and head butts. We enjoyed some play time as well. When I gave him a toy mouse, he played like a kitten. If you’re looking for the purr-fect pet, Pumpkin is waiting for you!
