Facts about Papi
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
Color: Black (All)
I am already neutered.
Hey! I'm Papi! I was brought to WHS/WARL as a stray by some nice people. It looks like I previously had an owner, but for some reason they just put me outside when they moved and didn't take me with them! Can you believe that?! Thankfully the neighbors brought me to the shelter because I did NOT like living outside. I've been described as "very lovable" by numerous staff members and volunteers, but I can be shy, so it's hard to see how great I can be if you don't take your time with me. If you're looking for a young adult cat to complete your household, check me out!
