**SAFE 08/04/16**HOUSEMATES SLIVER & HIS HONOR NEED YOU TONIGHT! A volunteer writes: Sometimes a cat comes to the Care Center who really puts a dent in your heart. For me, that’s His Honor. He’s a 9-year-old gentleman with well groomed tuxedo fur who greeted me with warm, shy eyes from the loft of his cat condo. I sensed that he was a nervous but very nice boy-and the notes for his behavioral exam confirmed that he displayed no worrisome behavior. But the adoption room can be hard for a cat who is used to a home, so I didn’t want to push His Honor out of his comfort zone. Instead, I stayed at his kennel, reassuring him that everything would be okay. I talked to him about how I would do everything I could to find him a real forever home. Please help me keep my promise to His Honor by considering adopting him today.

07/26/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Sliver is very torn — he enjoys attention, but he is wary and fearful of his surroundings in the shelter. Shelter life is not the best, certainly, but imagine if Sliver were to be the center of attention in a wonderful home of experienced cat parents where he would be nurtured and loved forever?
