PATRICK – A1072848
Safe - 5-14-2016 Manhattan
**SAFE 05/14/16** PATRICK, also listed as GORDO, doesn’t have it bad enough by confusing his name and being dumped at the ACC! He’s also FIV POSITIVE. Don’t let that scare you, FIV POSITIVE kitties can live long lives with non-FIV kitties and be a complete joy! This poor guy was brought in by a “surrender” but we all know that’s just an owner not wanting to pay the fee. PATRICK is 4 years old and has a terrific AVERAGE RATING! He may be a bit battered…but not broken! A bit scarred… But those scars can heal. He need a FOSTER or ADOPTER to assure him that life is worth LIVING! As long as he has the right owner!
