PLATO – A1081589
Safe - 7-23-2016 Staten Island Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
*** SAFE 07/23/16 *** FEARFUL KITTEN! Poor PLATO is only guesstimated to be about 12 weeks old, and nothing in his short life has prepared him to be a confident superstar at the ACC. Because, really, how DOES one prepare a cat to do well in that environment, and why would they want to? PLATO has let his opinion of the ACC be known by trying to FLEE from their clutches every chance he gets, which has played out as a NEW HOPE rating. Understand that this guy is NOT showing them any aggression, which bode well for him; he will probably mellow right out once a NEW HOPE rescue gets a foster/adopter on board who can help him feel safe. Make sure that happens by sharing his sad story and pledging toward his rescue, tonight!
