<![CDATA[Adoptables from the Montco SPCA]]> Please allow us to introduce Gatsby. This handsome man is the total package, from looks to personality. Gatsby was turned in as a stray, so severely matted that he was walking on mats instead of paw pads. After an exam by our vets, it was determined that Gatsby is an older boy, around 10 years of age; he is blind and has cataracts, but doesn't let this hinder him in any way! Gatsby is a very tolerant and sweet boy who loves love and being with people and will hop right into your lap to give hugs and kisses.
