**SAFE 04/15/16** IMPECCABLE! Handsome AVIV is a super-sleek young lad who was found by his most recent owner about a month ago. It’s possible he was someone’s pet even before that, because his shelter notes portray a cat who is in perfect health; this guy did NOT make the list on account of having caught the shelter cold. Aviv makes the At-Risk list because he was a bit grumpy with the ACC staff, which is plainly laid out in his shelter notes, but look what else is there! We meet an active, 18-month-old KITTEN who loves playing with toys, was described as being “playful and assertive” by his most recent owner, and who used to sleep on that person’s bed. Seriously, what 18-month-old kitten is going to be a model of maturity in as terrifying a place as the ACC? That EXPNOCHILD rating means AVIV can be reserved online by a direct adopter, or he can be foster/adopted through a New Hope rescue. Whatever happens for AVIV, it must happen tonight! Otherwise, this stunning boy loses it all, tomorrow, in the bowels of the ACC.
