I'm Tubby, and I'm a year-old, 8-pound neutered male Persian Longhaired kitty. I was brought to the Maui Humane Society in April, in dire need of a trim. My owners gave me away because they couldn't care for my long hair anymore. Sadly, an attempt to clip my fur went awry, and staffers at the Puunene shelter laugh at my shaved okole. I'm looking for a new owner to take me in and give me a place to hide until my hair grows out. With my mellow disposition, I'm content to lounge at a friend's side and look as handsome as I am, even if I'm half bald for a while.
