This older fellow can be a little shy around strangers, but reportedly lived with a young child and was described as playful and gentle towards her. Poor Pecan Pie isn’t feeling his best in the shelter environment and we’d definitely love to find him a loving, relaxing forever home to spend his golden years in!
