DUCKY – A1059213
Urgent 12-5-2015 Brooklyn
***GONE 12/05/15*** ISN’T THIS JUST NOT DUCKY?? POOR DUCKY HAD A SPECIAL PLEA GO OUT FOR HIS RESCUE BUT BEFORE HE HAD A CHANCE, DUCKY FINDS HIMSELF ON TONIGHT’S EUTH LIST!!! DUCKY is a very handsome, PERFECTLY HEALTHY, 2 year old boy who was brought into the shelter as a stray. He was able to be handled upon intake but as time went by, DUCKY realized that he was not in a good place and his fear got the best of him. He hissed and swatted at the assessor, so was punished with a NEW HOPE ONLY rating. DUCKY may be a dumped or lost pet or his owner just said he was a stray since no information was left on where he was found. DUCKY is a good boy and only wants to live and be loved. He needs someone with some cat whispering skills to give him space to decompress and relax once he knows he is safe. New Hope ratings are often unfair and any well behaved cat could lose his composure when dumped in this scary shelter. DUCKY needs a rescue angel who will allow him time to come around at his own speed. CAN YOU FOSTER DUCKY – HE REALLY IS A GREAT CAT AND DESERVES A CHANCE TO LIVE. CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO SAVE DUCKY!
