*** SAFE 08/22/16 *** HIS LIFE IS TURNED UPSIDE DOWN***Poor Graphite, life has not been the same since someone found him on the street and brought him into the ACC. Graphite probably has been on his own surviving on the mean streets for quite some time because he was not happy to be put in a cage surrounded by people. Graphite is acting out and not cooperating at all, he stays at the back of his cage, hisses and does everything possible to avoid any type of contact. Do you blame him? He is fighting for his life!!! The ACC lives for cats like Graphite, the ones who give them trouble and don’t cooperate. Gives them an excuse to throw them on the euth list. Graphite can use all the help he can get tonight. Without it he will surely die. Share Graphite and give him a chance at life before it is too late. He is counting on you.
