ODYSSEY – A1060704
Urgent 12-21-2015 Brooklyn
***GONE 12/21/15***ODYSSEY WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A JOURNEY TO YOUR HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS AND FUREVER Odyssey is a seven year old betrayed housepet who was sadly surrendered along with his feline friend, Sable (also listed tonight) even though he had been with his family since he was a kitten. This great guy is purrfectly healthy, already neutered and at 17 plus pounds, there is a whole lot of him to love. And that is what he needs—love and to learn how to trust people again. He was apparently given up because he didn’t get along with the former owner’s son and we all know that kids are not always that respectful towards pets. This is obviously the kind of kitty who is used to being a housepet and needs a second chance at a happy new life. He is New Hope only due to being PO’d at being at the shelter and who can blame him? Can you be the kind purrson to offer Odyssey a new “leash” on life? Please let a rescue know if you can help this poor, misunderstood fab fella. Transportation is available. Email [email protected] for assistance. Odyssey is in desperate need of a holiday miracle. Please help create one for him by making the call for this terrific tabby NOW!!!!
