**SAFE 03/13/16** YOU GOTTA BE JOKING! Super KATA is a neutered 2-year-old boy who had lived with his previous family since he was a kitten. He has been surrendered to the shelter for “pet conflict,” but his notes don’t say anything about a cat or a dog. What gives? Oh, wait, there it is….KATA supposedly does not get along with a BIRD in the former home. Well, no kidding? Were they thinking he was a stuffed toy puddy-tat who would sit on a shelf while the bird ruled the roost? Incredible! KATA is unnerved by the shelter, and has earned a respectable EXPNOCHILD rating. He needs a FOSTER/ADOPTER to step up for him tonight!
