*** SAFE 12/11/15 *** JOE IS JUST 7 MONTHS! Poor gentle little Joe! He’s been around children and is gentle and good with them. He’s great with other cats, and he was found outside and brought in to interact with the other animals in the finders home, but for whatever reason the finder thought they were doing JOE a favor, bringing him and his friend or brother (BENNY – A1059794) into ACC. JOE IS IN DANGER OF BEING PUT TO SLEEP TOMORROW-no matter how sweet, black cats have a harder time getting out of ACC alive! Won’t you reach out and save this sweet boy-and maybe his brother too? Don’t hesitate-these are kittens who will love you and entertain you with their antics!!! PLEASE SAVE JOE TONIGHT!!!
