If you are searching for an older kitty companion that enjoys snuggling and still has a playful kittenish streak P-Tol is your guy and would be thrilled to rescue you. If you have an interest in this wonderful kitty man, please feel free to contact me. I do when possible like to receive a vet reference. (Less)
