Perkins was rescued from a college campus, and named after the campus building he was found near the entrance of: the Perkins Student Center. He loves begging for food, chicken, cuddling with his Momma and ear scratches right at the corner of his ear!
Daisy was rescued from somewhere in Southeastern PA and takes “zoomies” to a whole new level. She absolutely adores cuddles with her dad, playing with leaves and trying to catch the laser pointer...no success yet!
