**SAFE 07/30/16**OH, NO! YOKO THE SWEET & PURRFECTLY HEALTHY CREAMSICLE NEEDS NEW LEASH ON LIFE! Yoko is a fab, friendly, neutered and deluxe sized boy who desperately needs us to advocate for him tonight. Poor Yoko has been betrayed by his former family who had him since kittenhood. He has been labelled “rescue only,” even though he has been a purrfect gentleman at the shelter, soliciting attention and tolerating all petting and handling. Yoko permitted his assessor to pick him up, purring constantly. Sounds totally “aggressive,” right? He is also purrfectly healthy. Apparently, there was an incident where Yoko bit and scratched someone. No details were provided. But interestingly, Yoko permitted his former owner to bathe him and clip his nails without much of a fuss. He was described as shy, friendly and playful. He did not live with other animals. At 16.7 lbs., there’s a whole lot of Yoko to love. Please be this darling boy’s hero by contacting a rescue and opening your heart and home by fostering or adopting. Transportation is available. Email our help desk and we will lead you through the process–[email protected] Help Yoko sing a happy tune and get him the love and care he needs and deserves by making the call for this sweet creamsicle NOW!!!
