Many of my pets have been rescue animals - Mr. Mango is one of my rescue furbabies and I've had him since he was about 3 months old. He had been left outside in the middle of winter to fend for himself.
He has flourished with a little love and care. He is a big gorgeous softy and loves a cuddle under the blanket in winter and pats (...when he's in the mood).
He especially loves meat nights with Jimbo's, after which he becomes as frisky as a little kitten!
