Safe - 9-10-2017 Brooklyn Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
***SAFE 09/10/17*** APOLLO WAS RELAXED AND FRIENDLY WITH AN OLDER CHILD AND A KITTEN IN HIS FORMER HOME!! He was said to love playing with balls, string, laser light toys and catnip toys. Apollo appears uncomfortable in the shelter environment, but with a little coaxing and gentle encouragement, this young guy warms up and seems to appreciate attention. He would be happiest in an experienced kitty home where he can warm up and explore at his own pace. Apollo and housemate, Pluto (not listed tonight) were sadly left at the shelter for owner moving – He is healthy and needs a new home – why not adopt both? MUST RESERVE THIS HANDSOME KITTY BY NOON!!
