MEET THE HAWKS

Paul
HE'S SPECIAL
Paul Williams is the oldest 4 legged member of the house at 11. He's a beautiful, sweet but dumb, orange Persian who drools while he purrs and will not drink out of his water bowl unless it is filled to the brim. He bares an uncanny resemblance to 70's singer/actor Paul Williams.
