**SAFE 01/17/16** DELUXE SIZED SWEET PANTHER NEEDS NEW FRIEND! A volunteer writes, “After giving up your home for so many years who wouldn’t be quiet and a bit withdrawn? Offer a bit of affection and Knight comes around like the sun rising to start the day. It takes him a bit of time, but he lets you into his world once he feels secure. He was pleasant in his former home. Maybe you can bring back good memories for him? Make him feel comfortable and safe, offer him another chance at happiness.” Knight was described by his previous owner as friendly, affectionate, and independent with a low activity level. He enjoys following his human around at home and likes to play with all kinds of toys! Knight tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Take Knight home and let him shine! Please let us know if you can help this sweet boy. You can reserve him online or contact a rescue and have him delivered directly to your doorstep. Email our help desk for assistance. This deluxe sized sweet panther would make a purrfect companion. He only has tonight. We are his only hope. Don’t let him down.
