***SAFE 08/27/16*** PLUS SIZE PUSS IN PERIL!! NEMO is a fearful, shy eight year old who sounds like his home life was on the strange side for his eight years with his former family. They say he was both fearful and tolerant of the child which doesn’t make sense…..and in very small print the ACC has added that NEMO is declawed!! Could that be why he is fearful and defensive?? We think so…..NEMO is a hefty guy at 21 pounds and he is NEUTERED. Right now, he is scared and has a NEW HOPE rating…..WHAT NEMO NEEDS IS SOMEONE SPECIAL TO “FIND” HIM!! He just needs someone to give him time and space and let him blossom at his own speed…..Unfortunately, the ACC is not about time…..and NEMO only has until NOON for that special PURRSON to claim him!! PLEASE APPLY NOW….THIS BIG MAN NEEDS TO BE LOVED NOT KILLED!! If you need assistance, finding a NEW HOPE rescue email us at [email protected]

Reaction to touch: Nemo hisses and his ears bend flat against his head as the assessor extends their hand. He starts to growl when the hand reaches him and strikes and hisses when petting was attempted. He lip licks afterwards and blinks. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Nemo is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home.
