SAFE 10/21/17 A volunteer writes: A poem by Junior: “Hey, people! I’m Junior, and I’m cool to the core. I’m totally not a bore. I like excitement and action. Let’s explore new lands and then make time for cuddling, What?! Cuddling is fun too! And plus, I still like doing things other cats do. I can be calm as midnight, but I’d rather be up like the sun. I think whoever hangs with me is in for laughs and lots of fun. I know I would be that great friend that will make our bond last until time ends.”
