JOHNNY – A1090171
Gone - 9-21-2016 Brooklyn
*** GONE 09/21/16 *** JOHNNY’S TALE IS A SAD ONE….Now 8 years old, JOHNNY was with his owner since he was a kitten. The former owner developed “allergies” but apparently can’t see a doctor and has never heard that there is such a thing as allergy medicine. JOHNNY has been a solo cat at home and his owner described him as “independent, fearful and aloof”…..so it was a truly inspired idea to bring this cat to a high kill shelter where he is surrounded by not only large numbers of other cats but dogs as well. Needless to say JOHNNY has a NEW HOPE rating. He needs a FOSTER or ADOPTER who will give him time to decompress and get his bearings….IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A QUIET COMPANION WHO CAN BE INDEPENDENT, PLEASE CONSIDER JOHNNY …..Otherwise, he will just end up another statistic at NOON tomorrow…..HELP JOHNNY NOW!!
