It’s a common story that is heard often at Responsible Pet Care. An elderly pet owner has to leave his home and cannot take the pet.

This is Zazu’s story, too. He came to live with his person when he was only six weeks old. He was with him for almost six years. His owner was devastated when he brought Zazu to the shelter; and Zazu was too.
Zazu loves to cuddle on his own terms. He loves kids, but does not like to be smothered. He is well behaved and his favorite sleeping place is on the bed.
One more thing, Zazu loves his treats. He will meow to signal it is time for a treat.
It’s time for Zazu to be loved again. He’s ready and waiting for his new person to adopt him.
