RAIN – A1086405
Safe - 5-13-2017 Brooklyn
SAFE 5/13/17 This handsome guy is 11 years old but doesn’t look or act it! He can be a little unsure of meeting new people, but with a little extra time he warms up and enjoys being petted, having his adorable cheeks rubbed, and investigating his surroundings. He’s truly a genuine sweetheart who’s improved SO MUCH during his stay at the Brooklyn Care Center! He can be found purring and enjoying some loving attention in BACC Adoptions, so take him home today! Rain would be happiest in an experienced kitty home where he can warm up at his own pace.
