AVERY – A1045650
Urgent 9-18-2015 Manhattan
*SAFE* 09/18/15 – A volunteer writes: (09/05/15) Avery is one serious Snuggle-o-saurus!! When I opened his cage door, he came right up to me and sat like a sweet little guy waiting for a head pat. So, I leaned my head in, and to my happy surprise, so did he! And there we were, two souls head butting each other. Avery is a sleek, beautiful gentle boy, with cashmere fur. He’s not very vocal, so he won’t toot his own horn- so I’m here to do it for him. He is one special guy…beautiful, sleek, calm and lovable. I’m not sure it gets any better than that!

A volunteer writes: (08/29/15) See Avery’s fierce-looking photo? Don’t believe it! This slender boy is actually super mellow and a sucker for human affection. When I met him earlier today in the cat adoption room, he was sitting right at the front of his kennel, beaming those golden eyes at me and beckoning me to let him rub against my hand. It seems that when he first arrived at the Care Center, he was standoffish. But he’s had time to get his bearings, and now he’s one cool, calm cat. Introduce yourself to our boy Avery today–and let him show you what a mushball he can be.
