Cat of the Month
Charlie is our cat of the month. He was born in January 2016. He was a rescue! He is a funny, friendly, and loving cat! Charlie is a very large cat weighing in at about 20 pounds. To say he loves to eat is an understatement, but he is very active and plays with our other 2 cats and our dog! He is a loving addition to our family!
