Rusty & Chocco


Rusty & Chocco pet of the week

Rusty (the 15 yo ginger) and Chocco (the 3 yo Birman) LOVE to help their Mummy do her jigsaws.

They’ve been living together for 3 years now and get along for the most part, but Chocco does get a bop every now and then when he’s being an annoying little brother.

💌 We’re huge pet lovers at The Assist and want to feature a pet each week — fill out this form for your fur baby to be featured!
