Featured Pet: Bert

Meet Bert! Soft-spoken and gentle, Bert's easy-going and affectionate personality makes him a great companion. For fun, Bert loves to chase feathers, toy mice, and string. Bert's guilty pleasure is binge-watching YouTube videos of birds, and has recently taken a liking to fast-paced anime! Bert is not really a fan of being picked up, but does he love the scratches! Noggin to rump, back to belly, Bert loves to be pet! This sweet boy is hoping to find a family that is as gentle and attentive as he is.
