*** SENIOR KITTY SCOOTER LIVED WITH OWNER FOR 10 YEARS AND NOW HAS LANDED IN THE ACC FOR ALLERGIES – ALONG WITH SEVERAL HOUSE MATES! **** SCOOTER came in with several other kitties, namely DALY who is also on tonight’s euth list. SCOOTER is 10 years old and lived with adults and a baby and is said to be gentle and affectionate around children.
