Sarge is ready for a new home but for now lives at the Ontario Feral Cat Project shelter in Ontario. (Submitted photo)

CATS: His work is done, time for a home

Sarge is the most perfect kitty you will ever meet. He is sweet, loving, playful and the perfect snuggle buddy!

Sarge, who is 8 1/2 years old, has been at the shelter for one year and eight months. A lot of this time he has been Archie’s comfort buddy – he took incredible care of his best friend.

Snuggling with him, grooming him and just being with Archie while he was battling kidney disease.

We haven’t really tried very hard to find a family for Sarge through this time, knowing Archie needed him.

We lost our beloved Archie almost two weeks ago and it’s obvious that Sarge really misses his best friend, He’s now ready to start his happily-ever-after with a family of his own!!

All the volunteers absolutely adore this adorable boy!

Sarge is neutered, UTD on vaccinations and tested negative for FeLV & FIV.

He is indoor only for his safety. No declawing is allowed..

Come meet Sarge on Saturday to see if you have found your newest family member.

SATURDAY ADOPTION EVENT: Every Saturday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Constance McCullough House, 84 N.W. 2nd St. in Ontario.
