Urgent 12-5-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 12/05/15*** BIG SECOND CHANCE FOR THIS GORGEOUS SNOWY WHITE KITTY!! IF YOU LIKE A LOT OF CAT TO CUDDLE, BENJAMIN IS YOUR GUY!! This 3 year old hunky handsome white male cat, is sweet and cuddly!! He was brought to the shelter because his owner had personal problems, and BENJAMIN will be killed by lethal injection tomorrow if he’s not rescued!! A staff member writes: “This boy’s lovely white coat just makes me think of winter being around the corner, and how beautiful the snows are. Benjamin would do best in a home where he can be allowed to be the free spirit that he is. He likes attention and really enjoys being pet, but isn’t a huge fan of being held or carried. He would love a home where he can sit on the windowsill and watch the snow drift down and then come to you for attention when it’s time for snuggling up on the couch. His previous owner says he loves to play and be brushed, and will follow you around the house to see what you’re up to. Come meet this handsome guy at our Manhattan Care Center today!” What a soft sweet cuddly guy! He’s described as “shy, fearful and playful!” He was affectionate as can be at the shelter and because his owner said he can play rough at times, he’d be best in an experienced pet home. You can’t do wrong by taking this hunky kitty home!! Please rescue BENJAMIN TODAY!!!
