Adopt Me: Mitts loves his cozy bed

He is looking for someone who will help him with his weight loss journey

CityNews Halifax, in partnership with the Dartmouth SPCA, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Approx Age: 12 years
Gender: Male
Site: Dartmouth

There may be no greater feeling than this big boy locking eyes and walking towards you. Meet Mitts!

Mitts is 12 years old and is very social. He wants to be with and around people at all time. Having said that though, he definitely prefers when you go slow and are gentle, quiet, and soft with him. His purr literally sounds like a car motor, and he loves laying in his cozy bed and being petted like a king.

Mitts is making strides with his weight loss journey and likes to play and roll around with catnip toys. He takes his gabapentin twice a day like a champ - especially if you go slow and sing to him. He seems to especially like when you break out in "Oooohh we're halfway there, ooooohh Mitt's and his medicine" because he knows it is almost done.

He would be a wonderful best friend for someone special who is willing to help him stay the course with his weight loss so he can feel fabulous.

Mitts is staying at the SPCA Provincial Office, so he has more space to roam and exercise. If you're interested in meeting him, please e-mail and they'll set up a visit.
