A Little Bit About Me…
A staff member writes: Meet the sisters: Chloe and Sasha came from the same home, where they lived together most of their lives. They are both mellow, chilled out senior gals looking for a place to call their own! They would love to stay together, and will thank you for your kindness with lots of cuddles and kisses. Will you help these senior sisters stay together and live out their happily ever after?
