Meet Pudgey @ Sophia’s
Meet Purrfect Pudgey!
Pudgey is a purfectly polite, quiet cat with a surprisingly playful streak. While Pudgey is a bit shy, she blossoms when shown love and patience. She likes her cheeks scratched and becomes more social after some good scratches and pets. She likes to chase the bell ball around the room with her mom, Lady. As an independent cat, she does often keep to herself yet appreciates your affectionate attention.
