Pet of the Week on Sept. 11

SA POTW Douglas.jpg

Hi, my name is Douglas!

I’m a rescue cat, and I live in Vergennes with my human parents. Although I look VERY serious in this picture, I am actually very playful and loving! I love playing with all of my toys, snuggling with anyone who will hold still long enough for me to climb in their lap, and eating my dinner really fast. I also enjoy running around the house so quickly that I am just a gray and white blur! I definitely keep my human parents on their toes, and there is never a dull moment with me in the house!
