***SAFE 05/23/16*** ONYX is just 9 months old and recovering from a wound to his right hand hock. But healing nicely, he is still in great spirits! So much so, that’s he’s earned a GREAT AVERAGE RATING! He’s been DUMPED because the previous owners landlord won’t allow cats in the “room” they rented. Perhaps, the operative word is ROOM. One should not have a pet if they can only limit to one room. But if it’s a live or die case then it’s understandable. However,these people have NOT kept him nor bothered to at least find the 9 month old a NO KILL SHELTER! Please, offer to FOSTER OR ADOPT ONYX, he’s just a baby and BABIES NEED A home to thrive in!
