Hi there my name is Simba, I am a big ole handsome man looking for my forever home.
I am a little shy and will tolerate gentle pants so I would love a quiet, patient home with no children (teenagers may be fine) and no other animals.
I would love a home where I can potter around and toast myself in the sun. I do come with a medical waiver that my new owners would need to be aware of.
If you think you are the home for me please contact the Feline Team at SPCA’s Wellington Centre.
