A1019044 – Chuckie – 10 yr neutered orange male – Owner Died – 17lbs – Rated GREEN by medical!

A volunteer writes:  This handsome declawed gent with his bright orange coat will bring sunshine into any home!

Chuckie's caretaker tried desperately to find Chuckie a home. She cared for him for 2 months after his dad passed away. She already had a few cats herself and is a senior lady and begged us to get Chuckie into a new home. The original owner had NO family at all. He was all alone with his kitty. Chuckie is currently in adoptions but we would like to place him ASAP. He is a super sweet boy.
