My boyfriend and I picked out Pumba at the humane society. After he rolled off his perch in the middle of a good head scratch, we knew he was right for us. Pumba had previously lived with a homeless man, until the man couldn't take care of him anymore. We learned why he was a great companion when we got him home. He's extremely tolerant, he talks when being talked to, and he loves morning snuggles. We're so lucky to have him!
