ALBERT – A1087810
Safe - 9-6-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 09/06/16***Imagine being someone’s pet all of your life then one day, they decide it’s time to move on but not with you? Well, this is what Albert is experiencing right now. His former owner decided that Albert should wind up in the ACC instead of their new digs. They turned in several cats and couldn’t even give separate stories for each like they were just possessions without personalities. This poor guy is 12 years old or 11, they weren’t even sure which shows how little interest they had. He lived with children whom he played gently with. He’s a shy guy with a low activity level but knows how to fit in with a family and would like to find one that really cares for his best interests. He is rated for experienced cat parents as he is a little tense being at the shelter. Please consider applying to adopt or foster this boy tonight and give him the home that he deserves!
