Hi, my name is Melo and I’m 10 years old. Don’t let my striking good looks fool you. I’ve had a pretty rough life as of late. My human companion died and I ended up in the shelter! I was so scared and afraid to let anyone get close to me. All the noises and other animals just freaked me out. However, since I’ve been alone in an apartment with a caring stranger, I’ve started living again; and it only took me a couple of days. I’m very loving and like being picked up and petted, even in the middle of the night when I jump onto the bed. I’ll even show off my tummy! I’m looking for my forever home with someone like you, as I still have a lot of life to live. Check out for more information here.
