Meet Varkosha, a 4-year-old, male black-and-white domestic longhair mix with the coolest lion’s mane haircut. He was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on April 14 because his previous owner had landlord/insurance issues. He is a total sweetheart and super affectionate. He loves being petted all over, sitting in your lap and being held. He gets along with the other kitties in his condo, and is a laid-back gentleman with everyone he meets. Varkosha has been neutered, tested negative for FIV/FeLV, microchipped and has received all age-appropriate vaccinations. Come meet him today, and you can spend some quality time together. #124907
