I’m a 9-year-old kitty, but I still play and have the energy of a young guy. I was adopted from Homeward Bound in Middlebury in June of 2014 and now live in Middlebury with my best human friend, Susan Burns.

Susan submitted my adorable photos to the Addison Independent’s Pet Photo Contest this year, and even though I didn’t win she still says I’m a model cat and a pet of a lifetime! Wouldn’t you?
