Katy Caterpillar's Story...
Have you ever read The Very Hungry Caterpillar? It is a simple story, not too different from my own. It tells the story of a caterpillar with a voracious appetite acquiring the nutrients he needs to ultimately transform into a beautiful butterfly. I, too, have a ravenous hunger raging inside of me. Only I yearn to fill my heart with love and friendship so that I may metamorphose into the companion you have always wanted. I cocoon myself every night in my crate and dream about the family that will have me. A family with respectful kids 8+, with no cats, but maybe another dog I can pal around with. However badly I want love, I don't mind sharing attention when there is enough to go around. Do you have the sustenance I require so that I may spread my wings and soar on the winds of love? 3 years old-27lbs. My adoption fee is $180 and includes spay, microchip, reduced-cost training class, free veterinary exam, 1 month pet health insurance, leash/collar, food sample, toy & treat packet.
