Adopt Buddha

Buddha came to us as a stray from the Penn Valley. He was just full of stickers and his hair was a mess. We took him in for a lion shave and found that after doing blood work he is diabetic.  Like his life wasn't hard enough.  So this sweet boy is now on insulin twice a day which is no problem at all to administer. We hope we can find this sweet guy a home where he is loved and cared for.  He does well with other cats and loves attention.
