I love people. My perfect day would consist of laying in a sunny carpeted spot for a few hours, snuffling around in the grass outside, and curling up for some Netflix in the evening.

Shelter life for a senior like me is not perfect. I know I'll find my forever home soon because I am so friendly and easygoing.
