**Mr. Pibb has been looking for a home since June 2012**
Meet Mr Pibb! This dapper fellow is one stunner of a kitty! Mr Pibb sports a white mustache and long tuxie coat, making it no surprise that he was a favorite of volunteers and staff alike during his time at the PAWS clinic. But Mr Pibb wasn't always looking so handsome. When he was brought in to PAWS (because his owner could no longer afford to care for him), Mr Pibb was underweight, dirty, and, as we learned later, diabetic. After some R&R time at the clinic, followed by a stint in a loving foster home, he's looking good and ready to move on to a more permanent situation!
You'd never know Mr Pibb had such a rough start. He's got personality in spades and is guaranteed to win you over with his unique, winsome ways. By turns talkative and stubborn, regal and affectionate, Mr Pibb is unlike any cat you've ever met. His hobbies include playing with toy mice, getting attention, and sleeping in your lap.
Mr Pibb would do best in a home where he is the only pet. Because of his diabetes, Mr Pibb does require special attention. He gets 2 insulin injections (Lantus) daily and is also on a prescription food diet to help manage his symptoms.
If you can give Mr Pibb the extra attention he needs, it will pay off tenfold. He will croon to you in his gravelly meow, gaze deeply at you with his golden eyes, and before you know it, you'll be just as in love as we are. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on Mr. Pibb.
