Bear is a sweet 2-year old cat, adoptable from Richardsons Rescue.  He loves to snuggle and is even trained to walk on a leash.  He gets along great with kids and other cats, and would make a great addition to any home.  He unfortunately lost one of his eyes as a kitten, but sees to do just fine without it!  You can reach Richardsons Rescue at 804-387-3758.

Dreamboat is a handsome senior boy, adoptable from Pixie’s Pen Pals.  He loves to be social and go on adventures.  He’s pretty laid back and enjoys a nice nap in the sun.  Dreamboat lost an eye due to a cherry eye, so he can be a little off-balance sometimes.  He’s gentle with children and ignores other animals.  He’s looking for a home with someone who can take him on walks and out to socialize!  You can reach Pixie’s Pen Pals at 804-525-2193.
