“I’m a 10-year-old neutered male. I’m looking for a warm and inviting family with whom I can spend my golden years among. In spite of my senior-status, I am strong and energetic. However, I do have one important health con- sideration: I have kidney disease, so I eat a special diet and need to be watched to make sure I am drinking appropriate amounts of water. For me this means wet food and some- times soaking my food in water. Call today to learn more!”
