Come meet this handsome man today.
ONE OF 13 CATS BROUGHT IN WHEN OWNER WAS EVICTED.
Spunky is one handsome fella with his gorgeous black and white fur and adorable white whiskers. He’s a little shy around new people, but he allowed gentle petting and seems to prefer relaxing underneath the blanket in his cage! With time and just the right amount of encouragement, this pretty kitty could be one happy housecat!
