Happy Tail! 🐾🐾

"He's settling in so great. We just got him yesterday evening. He examined every inch of the bedroom & living room yesterday & most of the night. He wanted me to open my armoire so he could sleep behind the clothes. Today he moved to my bed to sleep & was purring & kneading the blankets. He's eating & drinking water. I think he's pretty happy."

We love this for Khat and his family! Thank you for adopting, not shopping!
