PATIENCE – A1082884
Safe - 8-28-2016 Staten Island
**SAFE 08/28/16*** RETURNED AFTER ONLY 2 WEEKS!!! PATIENCE NOW NEEDS A SUPER HERO!! Personal problems? Who doesn’t have personal problems? PATIENCE was adopted on Aug 8th by someone who kept him all of 2 weeks – on Aug 22nd, this person brought PATIENCE back to the ACC – knowing it is a kill shelter and he may end up dead. PATIENCE is a DECLAWED tabby and was said to have been friendly, affectionate and very gentle. He was a bit afraid of the 2 year old child in the home but we won’t go there. A volunteer wrote a nice note but called this neutered boy a “she” – guess they didn’t read the cat’s ID card. A volunteer writes: Patience is a lovely tabby whose front paws are declawed, which might cause her to have some sensitivity to them. She’s a bit on the shy side, so cat parents would need to be gentle, kind and have patience (in both sense of the word) so that this pretty girl could become confident, happy and loving in return. WE DON’T CARE IF PATIENCE IS A BOY OR A GIRL – ALL WE CARE ABOUT IS THAT AT NOON TOMORROW HE HAS SOMEWHERE TO GO – AND THAT SOMEWHERE IS NOT THE EUTH ROOM!! PLEASE SAVE PATIENCE TONIGHT AND GIVE HIM A FUREVER HOME THIS TIME. EMAIL [email protected] IF YOU NEED RESCUE CONTACT INFO.
