Pet of the Week: George the Cat

George is an older, distinguished gentleman who was surrendered when his owner became too sick to care for him.

He is gray and white and a little blind and a little deaf, but still very active, confident and full of life. George also is very easy going and gets along well with other cats. He came in with two other cats, Abby and Maddie, and shelter staff and volunteers would love to see them all go to a home together.

Due to his age and the fact that he is declawed, George needs to be an indoor cat only.
