Sweet and gentle, Bernie is searching for love and a life-long lap to nap on.

Bernie: May 22, 2020 – Adult Male

This is Bernie, absolutely the sweetest cat ever! His unique markings on his face and great personality make him the total package!

He LOVES people and cannot get enough of your attention! If he doesn’t think he’s getting the attention he deserves he will be sure to let you know by hopping on your lap or rubbing against your legs.

Bernie: May 21, 2020 – “Nothing like a good lap nap!”

He loves curling up on my lap. He just wants all the attention, all the time!
