***SAFE 08/30/16*** MIO IS a breathtaking MAINE COON MIX NEUTERED and THREE YEARS OLD, GENTLE AND SWEET. He was given up by his former owner because of a “child conflict” and this always puts the cat in an unfair light. The cat may have had to defend himself against children who were young and didn’t understand about not pulling the kitty’s tail, or perhaps were not taught to socialize properly with the cat. In any case, it is MIO who will pay with his life, because someone in the Bronx decided that MIO was expendable. Will you save this already neutered and exotic gentle boy who deserves so much more? He did nothing to worry the ACC staff, but is having to deal with a crowded “shelter” and huge list tonight.
