SKYLER – 26469
Safe - 5-17-2018 Manhattan
SAFE 5/17/18 WATCH HIS VIDEO! Skyler’s favorite things in the world are boxes, treats and cheek scratches! This lovely boy came to ACC when he was found outside, limping and straining to urinate. He would benefit from further follow-up vet care and a foster home to recover in on his way to his forever home.A volunteer writes: When I walked into the room the first thing I heard was a chorus of operatic meows. The source: Skyler, a handsome Tabby with emerald green eyes sitting regally in his condo. Skyler greeted me with deep baritone meow as if to say: “What took you so long? I opened the condo door and offered him some treats. In exchange Skyler gave me cheek rubs and head butts. His fur was so soft and his purr so soothing. Want a Virtuoso of your very own? Skyler is waiting for you.
SKYLER was brought in by someone who said he was limping and also crying when trying to urinate. SKYLER has a heart murmur and needs follow up vet care. Please adopt this handsome tabby today.
