**SAFE 07/02/16**DECLAWED BRITISH SHORTHAIR BOY DUMPED BY HIS OWNER FOR MOVING TO A NON – PET FRIENDLY HOME!! OPIE NEEDS A RESCUE ANGEL NOW!! OPIE is a 9 year old very handsome British Shorthair kitty. His owner dumped him and his housemate ALYSSA – A1078638 who is not listed tonight at the ACC when he decided to move out of state. Apparantly, even though he had poor OPIE since kittenhood, he did not make plans to take his cat with him. OPIE was never really given much attention if you read his bio and it seems this owner just didn’t care too much that his kitten was shy and hid most of the time. However, his owner DID take the effort to cruelly DECLAW poor OPIE which most likely contributed to his shy behavior in the home. OPIE lived with another cat in the home and was around older kids. His ex owner stated he didn’t play much. But really, what that says is the OWNER didn’t take the time out of his day to play with OPIE!! OPIE NEEDS SOMEONE WHO WILL APPRECIATE HIM AND ALLOW HIM TO BE A LAID BACK, QUIET COMPANION! OPIE ONLY HAS TIL NOON WEDNESDAY TO LIVE. PLEASE HURRY AND OFFER TO FOSTER OR ADOPT THIS OLDER BOY – YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT – EMAIL [email protected] FOR RESCUE INFO NOW!!
