Velvet! Black velvet! That’ll be the first thing you think when you touch me! Then when you get to know me a little (and I mean a little — it won’t take long!), you’ll realize that I’m as sweet as I am soft. My dear dad, who rescued me from the streets when I was a youngster, has developed major health issues that need treatment out of state, so I’m in need of another savior to take over for him. I’m a lovable, lap sitting, “needy and dependent” (i.e., I want your undivided attention!), 6-year-old gentleman who actually doesn’t live up to his name at 15 pounds. But it’s all love and gentleness, so make my dad happy and give me one more chance. Life’s too short for us not to be together!
