I adopted Digger Phelps from my county animal shelter almost 4 months ago. The shelter felt he was 10 years old and had placed him on their urgent adoption list after having him for 4 months. No one else adopting animals had shown any interest in him. The shelter warned me that he was an older cat and might have medical issues. I told them that was exactly why I wanted him because no one else did. He is a blessing to me every day.He sleeps right next to me all night and has made best friends with my 9 year old cat,Teddy, also a rescue .
