SOCKS – 33189
Urgent - Manhattan
CHECK OUT VIDEO!! A volunteer writes: Socks has the cutest meow and is very calm and super friendly. He is also very smart. He doesn’t really like hard food so he picks it up and puts it in his water until it softens. How cool is that? This boy is a family cat who would get along with everyone. He is a real cuddly cat.
SOCKS is already neutered and hoping someone will give him a home after his owner surrendered because they moved. Please consider making Socks part of your family today!
