Adopt Raphael. Sandy Geddry


Have you ever heard of the category of feline called LB? This is the category that Raphael belongs to. He’s a love bug.

Two year old Raphael resides in the Community Room at Responsible Pet Care. He is easy to spot because he is the cat that is in the middle of the action. He hangs around waiting for someone to bend down and give him some love. Raphael discovered that if he follows someone around long enough they will eventually notice him.

Raphael is a good natured cat. He is ready to put a smile on your face and become your love bug.
