ROMANO – A1097259
Safe - 3-24-2017 Brooklyn
SAFE 3/24/17 VERY SWEET BOY NEEDS FULL VET EVAL – CAME IN WITH ULCERS ON PAW PADS, TONGUE AND NASAL AREA – MAY HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO CAUSTIC SUBSTANCE – A volunteer writes: Energetic Romano is a real people-cat. This stunning tabby first caught my attention when, while paying attention to another feline above him, Romano stretched his paw up towards me and tapped my shirt impatiently, letting me know in no uncertain terms that I was to pet HIM next. OK, fine, so he’s not the most polite cat — but he makes up for that ten times over with his outgoing and sweet demeanor.
