At the SPCA: Prince Charming

Prince Charming really lives up to his name! This 2-year-old Maine coon/Tabby mix is sweet and playful. He seeks your attention, loves to be petted and have his chin scratched. He’ll pay back your love and affection with little head bumps. Cats do this to show you they like what you’re doing! Prince Charming was brought into our shelter as a stray back in July and he’s ready to relax in a new home. Special adoption fee is $5. Information: sspca.org
