Let's get to know each other a bit more...

A volunteer writes: Oops, this kitty is named after the wrong Beatles Song. Mr. Moonlight would be more appropriate, since he's a boy! This awesome boy has gorgeous Bengal stripes and spots, accompanied by a gentle, warm and welcoming personality. As I sat on the floor outside his bottom condo, he rested his paw on my knee and his chin in my palm. With both hands I stroked him on either side of his head and neck, and he was a pussycat (a to-die-for one). Come see for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

My medical notes are...
