CRIMSON – 22451
Safe - 3-23-2018 Manhattan
SAFE 3/23/18 **LONG STAY** CRIMSON is a handsome cat with jet black fur, yellow eyes and average behavior @ MACC . WATCH THE VIDEO! A volunteer writes: Crimson is a handsome gent. A sleek jet black coat and yellow eyes as big as saucers make him scrumptious. The shelter was happily busy that day, and the cat room was crowded. Totally unfazed by the people and the noise, Crimson-the-affection-express came purring right up to the front of his condo door. Sitting on the floor, I opened the door and he marched right into my lap. The next thing I knew my arms were filled with Mr. Crimson himself. As I held this sweet boy in my arms, Crimson was in his element full of kitty kisses and head butts. Crimson’s sweet disposition could make a cat lover out of anyone. Let him share his love with you. Adopt Crimson today.
