RAICHU – A1060269
Urgent 12-15-2015 Manhattan
***SAFE 12/15/15*** RAICHU IS ANOTHER PERFECTLY HEALTHY CAT WHO WILL DIE BECAUSE HE IS AFRAID! RAICHU was found outside in a cat carrier. No information is known about him or who left him there. He is about 4 years old and is very unhappy being locked in a cage where he hears all kinds of noises and has people poking at him. RAICHU tried swatting at the assessor so he was punished with a NEW HOPE rating. We know that the best of cats freak out when dumped in a shelter – and once given a chance in a loving home, they do an about face and relax. RAICHU would like this chance. He wants to live and only you can help him. OFFER TO FOSTER OR ADOPT THIS HANDSOME ORANGE KITTY AND YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY. YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF A NEW BEST FRIEND FOR THE HOLIDAYS!
