Pet of the Week: Pumpkin, a sweet boy who recently traveled over from Afghanistan

Pumpkin had a long journey from Kabul, Afghanistan, to Virginia, but he’s now ready to settle into his forever home.

Here’s what he told his friends at 4Paws Rescue Team:

Hi! My name is Pumpkin, and I recently arrived in the states after being rescued by an American who was working in Afghanistan, and then I was sponsored to travel here.

I am a sweet and gentle boy who loves to be petted. I am outgoing, and I get along with other cats. I’d especially enjoy another cat who would like to play with me!

I can be chatty sometimes, but that’s just because I want you to know how happy I am to be here and how much I look forward to your love and attention. I enjoy playing with my kitty toys, and I would be a great fit in almost any household.

Pumpkin’s estimated birthday is January 2018.

Could you give Pumpkin his forever home?
