MUSE – A1105948
Safe - 3-16-2017 Brooklyn
SAFE 3/16/17 Muse is a handsome and healthy 11 pound guy with a gorgeous black and white cat and gleaming eyes! You wouldn’t guess he’s actually SEVENTEEN either! Muse’s previous owner said that Muse has lived with children of all ages and was relaxed and gentle with them, although he was more likely to keep to himself (and who can blame a senior guy?). He was very friendly and relaxed during intake and was described by his previous owner as mellow and affectionate. Take this gentleman home today!
