The paper towels keep coming! Thank you so much to our friends for helping when we ran out. (And special thanks to our delivery pro on the right, who really had his work cut out for him! Our shelter pups gave plenty of kisses in gratitude.)
So much personality! Wilford Brimley is looking for a home. From his foster parent:
"Wilford is quite possibly the snuggliest cat ever invented. If there is a lap in the room, he wants to be on it. Naturally, laptops, books, plates, and other lap-stealers are his mortal enemies. Except books- he loves to rub his face on the corners of books while the humans attempt to read. If the lap remains unavailable, he will settle for trying to perch on a chest or armpit, but he really prefers to have a lap to camp out in.
His other loves include anything made out of fleece so he can knead it into a comfortable nap nest and laser pointers. He’s also a huge fan of purring and snoring, and is happiest when he can do all of his favorite things at the same time. Put a fleece blanket on or near your lap and this cat will follow you to the ends of the earth.
Wilford has a hilarious irony to his facial expressions- while he is pure sweetness and love, he has very misleading snaggleteeth that makes him look like he thinks he’s tough. He is the opposite of tough. He began his life as a stray, and when he was brought to PAWS he had to have most of his teeth removed, except for the snaggle ones. He can usually be found appearing to sneer with his tongue sticking out.
Wilford will be happiest as the only pet in the home. He's easy to startle with loud noises, so he would likely do best in a home without small children. He love having adult guests over the house: more laps! Overall, Wilford will make a great companion and pet."
