Smooshy. (Sandy Geddry)

Sweet Smooshy is the resident love muffin at Responsible Pet Care. She lives for cuddle time.

Smooshy is a golden feline. She’s 12 years old. She is a quiet cat that will draw you closer to her just by looking into your eyes. Take one look and you will want to snuggle her in your arms.

One of the things that Smooshy enjoys is to be wrapped in a blanket and carried around. She is a good choice for someone who wants a lap cat.

Because Smooshy is a senior cat, her best situation is in a quiet home where she can continue being the resident love muffin.
