Who has the chubbiest cheeks? Archie does! Archie’s a sweet fellow who has been at Friends of Strays Animal Shelter for quite some time. He’s an independent, low maintenance cat who enjoys the company of his feline friends but would also be perfectly happy as your one and only. This 4-year-old is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped, and available for free. To adopt him, visit Friends of Strays at 2911 47th Ave. N in St. Petersburg.
