MR FOX – A1089630
Gone - 9-16-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 09/16/16*** SO WHAT DID THE FOX SAY? HE SAID PLEASE SAVE ME FROM AN UNTIMELY DEATH AT NOON IN THE NYC ACC!! MR FOX’s owner dumped him for “personal problems”. Don’t we all have personal problems? MR FOX is sad and scared because he was uprooted from the only home he knew and abandoned in the scary shelter. MR FOX’s ex-owner stated that his cat was friendly and affectionate. He likes to purr and rub on your legs, and does not scratch furniture. Sounds like a PURRFECT kitty to me! MR FOX is NEW HOPE rated as a punishment for not liking the ACC. CAN WE HELP THIS PERFECTLY HEALTHY CAT TONIGHT? MR FOX IS NEUTERED AND WILL BE YOUR NEW BFF IF YOU CAN OFFER TO ADOPT HIM TONIGHT! GIVE MR FOX A FREEDOM RIDE BY CONTACTING A RESCUE TO PULL HIM TO SAFETY.
