TACOMA – A1057747
Urgent 11-23-2015 Manhattan
***SAFE 11/23/15*** TACOMA and OLYMPIA are both FeLV positive. TACOMA is an AVERAGE rated,4 month old boy and OLYMPIA is a BEGINNER rated, 16 week old girl. The ACC didn’t want to shoulder any responsibility so instead they sent out a SPECIAL PLEA on TACOMA, who is RESCUE ONLY while OLYMPIA can be publically adopted. BOTH need a FOSTER or ADOPTER and if you think you can take both that would be even better. FELV positive cats can live together or be only cats. But here,you get two that need each other and if you FOSTER, a RESCUE will pay the vet bills! Contact a NEW HOPE RESCUE, and offer to take one or both but whatever you do…save a life!

11/13/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
11/13/15 12:46 Tacoma and Olympia are about 3-4 months old. Their finder has been feeding them and other stray cats in her yard. She reports that Tacoma keeps his distance from her. She left a carrier outside and found them resting in it in the morning. They were tense but quiet in the carrier on the way here and didn’t try to escape. Tacoma was stiff with wide eyes in his carrier but allowed us to pet and scan him (-). He walked into his kennel, and retreated to the back, and we gave him quiet time alone. Later, he was stiff but was tolerant while I picked him up, held him, collared him, sexed him, and put him back. We took his pictures in his kennel and in my arms. We felt he would have fled if on the counter. Tacoma didn’t resist or vocalize.
No Web Memo
