I'm loving, and enjoy having my beautiful gray coat combed and brushed. I hear humans wondering how I got my name. Well, duh: think of Remmington Steel - that's me. My brother and I are great buddies, but we are not co-dependent like we used to be. I'd love to meet you. Would you like to meet me? If so, call High Sierra Animal Rescue and ask about R(fmmy.
