***SAFE 09/10/16*** SECOND CHANCE!! …..A staff member write: Bustelo is a very handsome 6 year old cat looking for his forever home. He’s a little chunky and has a whole lot of love. All he wants is your constant love and affectionate…and maybe some treats too! He’s a total lovebug with that will rub up against your legs and cuddle next to you on the couch. BUSTELO WAS ABANDONED BY PREVIOUS OWNER…BUT DID GIVE HIM GREAT BACKGROUND INFORMATION. So nice that they gave him shining reviews but then ABANDONED the 6 year old, already NEUTERED guy. Here’s something interesting in the notes…the previous owner said, “He will urinate outside the litter box if it is full!!”…. Who out there WOULD DO THE SAME IF THEIR TOILET WAS OVERFLOWING? Maybe not literally, but you get the point. It causes one to think they may be why they abandoned poor BUSTELO! If only they had any sense to just take him to a vet…aside from the filthy litterbox matter, he could have a UTI. But, they chose to add to the population of ignorant and selfish people who would rather dump their pet than resolve the problem! Offer to FOSTER OR ADOPT this sweet guy, who will need an EXPERIENCED new owner, but he’s got a lot of love to GIVE!
