Rourke A1106882 is a young male brown tabby & white Kitten that was left on our counter at the BXAC after the finder came in stating they found him & aren’t able to keep him.
During intake Rourke allowed all handling. He’s a cute kitten that allowed to be scanned (-), collared & taken pictures of. Rourke didn’t seem to mind being picked up/held & was placed into a kennel with ease where he began eating wet kitten food immediately then curled into a ball for a nap.
Rourke A1106882 appears to be young, is underweight but does eat well on his own. He also has missing fur/hair on his front paws and a little on his chin
