Urgent 9-26-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
**SAFE 09/26/15** CATRICK is a NEUTERED 3-year-old family pet who suddenly found himself without a family when those folks moved right out from under him! According to this owner surrender notes, this glossy purr machine is “a very smart cat and a master of the litter box,” and would probably be a decent fit for older children. He earned an EXPNOCHILD rating from the ACC and has NO idea why his people have left him behind, nor does he know what the shelter are planning to do with him tomorrow. Make sure he NEVER finds out that he was scheduled to die at the ACC by finding a FOSTER/ADOPTER to save his life, tonight!
