Heather from the Humane Society of West Michigan wasn't able to come into the studio today so we talked on the phone about Nutmeg!

Got a lap? Nutmeg wants on it! As soon as he settles onto your lap he will proceed to turn into a purr machine. This big boy would be a great companion for someone who likes to get cozy on the couch. He is a super friendly and chill cat that is just happy to be around people! Nutmeg appreciates the finer things in life, like a comfy bed and a delicious meal. He has lived successfully with cats in the past, and may appreciate a feline friend or two in his new home. Sugar, spice, and everything nice--give Nutmeg a chance today!
