KIPLING – A1059267
Urgent 12-2-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 12/02/15*** Stunning KIPLING was brought to the shelter by a former owner (of a whopping 3 weeks’ duration) who supposedly had no time for him, and who described Kipling as being shy and gentle. KIPLING is also described as a cat who “cries at night,” and given that he has had some medical issues at the ACC, one wonders if that was not developing during that 3 weeks in his most recent home. KIPLING has earned a delightful AVERAGE rating despite too much change and not feeling very well, so it stands to reason that he will probably be an outstanding cat if only a FOSTER or ADOPTER will give him that chance. KIPLING deserves to feel better, and to be loved. Where is the person who will give him a safe place to do all that, and more? Advocate fiercely for KIPLING, tonight!
