Urgent 11-20-2015 Staten Island Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
**SAFE 11/20/15** Doesn’t this sweet fellow look like the Lion from the Wizard of Oz? KATNISS has a nice EXPERIENCE rating, glowing volunteer comments, and is in need of a FOSTER or ADOPTER to save his life tonight! “A volunteer writes: Katniss is a handsome young man with a lovely black nose accenting the white on his face. He’s feeling a bit tense now, and he’d like to change that. Katniss is hoping that an experienced cat parent would visit with him and take him home because they would know exactly what he needs to help him lose that tense feeling, and be relaxed, content and purr like a kitten.”
