RA – 23509
Safe - 4-8-2018 Manhattan
SAFE 4/8/18 RA is a sweet kitty that was surrendered with several other kitties from the same household. There is nothing in his medical notes that indicates why the swollen cheek but it would be best to have seen by a vet asap. He currently came down with a URI.
