Shirokichi is no spring chicken, but he has a song in his heart and a spring in his step that makes him look like he’s listening to music and ready to break out in a dance routine. He’s a tiny fellow of 14 years, weighs less than most cats and could even stand to put on a bit of weight. But right now, being light makes it easier on the laps he loves to curl up in.
Shirokichi could spend his days in laps and he’ll come over and ask to be picked up. He loves people, and after his former owner passed away, he could use some much-needed reassurance, love and affection to fill the emptiness he surely feels.
Shirokichi may not have all that much time left, but we are hoping to find someone with a big heart who will reach out, love him, and make his final years happy ones.
