He can’t control his tail or his licker and loves everyone he meets. I have found that we can’t have any soft toys or kongs because he…

Danny Boy

Without a doubt I know that my new kitten was a gift from God. God knew that Danny and I needed each other. I had recently lost my cat and companion of 13 years, Dexter. He had Cancer and I had to say goodbye. It was one the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. My friend Mary is…
