Cheerio Hi everyone my name is Cheerio and I'm a very small 6 year old male. My shelter mom had to check for my "belly button" when she told I was a male. I weigh 1lb 12oz. I was kept outside on a back porch in the Florida heat for most of my life. My previous cagemate had passed a few months before I was surrendered due to pneumonia. I did go into shelter shock for a bit after I came in but I'm doing great now.

I love to run around and dance. I'm quite good at it too. Gift suggestions for me would be a oval bed from Petco. I sleep in my little hut on one. I also love tubes, PickleJuice and my soup. I love to play with the dangle toys on the baby play mat at the shelter.

For more suggestions please see below for our shelter list. Thank you for reading my story. If you want to be my Santa please make sure to check your email after choosing me and click on the confirmation link to confirm. If you don't do this I might not get a Santa or will be put back up on the tree within a couple days.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family :)
