**SAFE 09/29/15** FOUND IN A NIKE GYM BAG! Take a look at gorgeous LINCOLN and ask yourself, WHO puts such a nice cat in a stinky old gym bag, and leaves it on the street? Ugh! Lincoln was understandably rattled by that experience, but he bounced back and earned a super AVERAGE rating from the shelter. Good boy! This cat belongs in a HOME, purring and sleeping in the sun. Please make that possible for LINCOLN by finding a FOSTER or ADOPTER for him, tonight!
