(MASS APPEAL) – It’s time for Mass Appeal’s Pet of the Week and we’re introducing you to Mr. Baby! Lee Chambers from Dakin Humane Society is here with more on this sweet guy.


Well, Mr. Baby wasn’t babied. In fact, he had a hard life before coming to Dakin. But since he’s been here, it’s obvious that he is a real sweetheart of a guy. What we know from the person who brought him to Dakin is that Mr. Baby lived with children ages five and up and did well with them. Mr. Baby is a mature kitty and mature kitties bring a lot to the table. What you see is what you get. No kitten shenanigans like swinging on the chandelier and climbing your drapes like Mt. Everest. Mature cats have a calm wisdom about them and make delightful companions. Are you looking for someone to baby? Then this guy is for you. He deserves it.
