Dear HSBC,

Bear is adjusting to his new home with a new name, Tug-bear, as he is a 15-pound beauty. Tug is getting along with the resident 10-year-old black cat Boo (called Boo-bear).

I was specifically looking for an older cat (Tug is 8-years-old), because Boo is older. He is wonderful and I am very lucky that he chose me and Boo for his forever home.
