  1. I adopted my pumpkin from the shelter over 5 yrs ago he is great. On the day I was looking for a stripped kitten. Pumpkin orange and white was in a crate crying and putting his paws out as to say please save me. The person at the shelter said he was next to die, if I take him now there will be no charge, just to save him…I did and again he is great….
