CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) - Name: Oso
Breed: Domestic long hair
Age: 8 years
Sex: neutered male
Color: gray and white
Reason for Surrender and Description:
I came to Dakin because my family was moving and couldn't take me along. My name means "Bear" in Spanish, but don't worry I'm more "teddy bear" than "grizzly bear"! Inside all this fur is a heart of pure gold. I love scratches, petting, snuggles and will sit in your lap and purr with delight.
My ideal home would have people who love giving me attention as much as I love getting it.
Hair stylists are encouraged to apply as I'll need regular brushing to keep my gorgeous gray coat in good condition.
I enjoy the company of other cats and I've been known to play a great game of fetch. At Dakin I'm considered a Lonely Heart, which means I've been here longer than most cats. There's a special discount on my adoption fee to make sure I'm on my way home soon!
