Gone - 7-15-2017 Manhattan
GONE 7/15/17 *RETURN* You can call me Al. Callllll me Al! Asthmatic kitty needs placement by 12PM Tomorrow. I’m pleased to introduce to you Al!
He’s a dapper older fella who enjoys stealing the blank scrabble tile, meowing at ghosts in the attic, and cruising tinder in search of widowed cats looking for companionship. He considers himself to be a very young 14 and the cat version of Clark Gable. He is asthmatic and will need immediate New Hope placement tomorrow and will likely require oxygen support.
Al would like you to know that he plans on bouncing back and already has a tinder date lined up for Sunday.
