Hi, I’m Flynn Rider ! I'm a height dweller. I just love my cat condo and will really need this to adjust in my new home. I'm friendly but will come to you when I want attention. A variety of cat toys will keep me very happy. I would be best as the only pet and with adults.
Hi, my name is Sinatra ! I'm high energy and like to be stimulated with different activities. I would be best with adults and older children. Walks, playing in the yard and cuddling are more favorite things.
