Zoey from the Humane Society of West Michigan was on Wet Nose Wednesday this morning, a part of Andy in the Morning, and she introduced us to Nutchatch the cat.

As she said, this fall weather has us all looking to snuggle up, and honestly, Nuthatch here is the purrr-fect partner for it!

Is he fluffy? Check. Is he a snuggler? Check. Does he have cheeks that just won't quit? Check and CHECK! Does he want to share your pumpkin spice latte? We can't be certain, but we would bet yes! If you are looking for all of this and more, Nuthatch might be your purrr-fect man! It might look like he has some nuts stashed away in those big-old-cheeks, but the only thing this sweet boy is full of is love!

Don't let his FELV or FIV scare you, it just means he has a weakened immune system, but FeLV is not cancer! Neither of these are not contagious to humans, dogs, or small animals, but can affect other kitties, so he should be an only cat, or live with kitty roommates who already have FeLV. He's not suffering and can live a long happy life, so don't let his diagnosis stop you from adopting. This sweet, social guy is just three years old and looking for a fur-ever family to fall in love with him!

Speaking of fall, autumn is officially here, and we're excited for the cool crisp air, bonfires, crunchy leaves, and apple picking--but it's also good to keep in mind your pet's safety this time of year!

Make sure to steer clear of possibly toxic fungus, rodenticides, school supplies, (many of which can be choking hazards) as well as wild animals settling down for the cold weather.
