FITTLE – A1084140
Gone - 8-8-2016 Manhattan
**GONE 08/08/16**FITTLE has a heartbreaking story—poor guy! He’s 10 years old and in desperate need of a home and some TLC! He was brought into the shelter as a stray. He may have been someone’s pet at some point because this gray guy is very friendly. FITTLE has a possible wound on the side of his jaw, but with some vet care, he should be good as new. He is SAD now, but IT WOULD MAKE HIS LIFE if you rescue him! He’s an elderly gentleman who is mellow and sweet! He’s looking for some petting and affection. He seeks it out—HE WANTS TO BE YOUR LAP CAT!! He rubs against the hands of a visitor to his cage. What a sweetheart!!! THIS GUY IS A LOVER, NOT A FIGHTER! FITTLE would make a wonderful furry friend in a beginner or average pet home. PLEASE SAVE THIS SWEET GRAY GUY’S LIFE TODAY!!!
