SAFE 9/6/17 Spotty is a handsome and equally friendly long-haired cat. His previous guardian says that he’s “very sweet and affectionate and will solicit attention when he wants to; otherwise you can find him curled up in his favorite spot.” Meet this cuddlebug today!
Spotty came to us as an owner surrender and simply the owner doesn’t want the cat. We do not have further information as to why the owner could not keep Spotty. He is a great boy!
SPOTTY’s owner had no answer as to why he was dumping his cat at the shelter. Spotty is declawed on his front paws and already neutered. He is very sweet and affectionate and purred and gave head-butts on exam. Please adopt this super kitty!
