***SAFE 09/23/16*** GARNET WAS TRAPPED AND DUMPED WITH A GROUP OF CATS FROM A PARK!! Yes, GARNET was one of several cats who someone trapped because they stated the park is “overrun by stray cats”. GARNET is FIV POSITIVE – which is something that is not highly contagIous to other cats and nothing to worry about if you have a multi cat household. GARNET is AVERAGE rated and was purring and leaning into petting on her assessment. She is obviously used to people and loves attention.
