Urgent 9-6-2015 Brooklyn
*GONE* 09/06/15 – Gremlin is a super sweet young kitten who is looking for a great new home! Gremlin was pretty badly constipated, so much so that it had shifted his bladder to the left. His bladder was able to be expressed easily, but Gremlin is going to require deobstipation. Please let us know if you can help Gremlin today!
