Chester, tabby and domestic shorthair mix
Chester is a lovable male tabby and domestic shorthair mix in the care of New Mexico Animal Friends.
He has mastered his house-training etiquette, and he is neutered and vaccinated.
Here's what Chester's friends at New Mexico Animal Friends think of him:
Chester greets his human when she feeds him every morning. Cheerful and affectionate, he loves to rub against his human. He arches his back when you pet him. He purrs continuously when he is held. He can be stroked or held literally for hours. When left alone, he naps quite a bit, then rubs against the furniture and grooms himself. He is a mellow fellow.
