SHALLOW – A1070302
Safe - 4-26-2016 Brooklyn Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
**SAFE 04/26/16** BETRAYED BY HIS OWNERS AND NOW LISTED TO DIE AT NOON TOMORROW! Shallow is a beautifully marked 9 year old tabby. He’s being given a bad rap by his previous owners, but his behavior at the shelter indicates they may not have given the full story! Shallow takes a bit to warm up, but once he does he’s full of head-butts and will lean into petting! This boy is recommended to an experienced home, most likely because he is a little more independent. However, that does not mean he deserves to DIE! Please don’t let this handsome boy become another victim of the ACC. Advocate for him RIGHT NOW! His last hours are slipping away!

Shallow is friendly towards strangers and children but will swat when he feels bothered. He enjoys using his scratching post and rough ropes. The enrichment facilitator has been monitoring Shallow and reports that he was tense, lip licking and was slow blinking when he first arrived.
