TOMMY – A1049948
Urgent 9-11-2015 Brooklyn
**GONE 09/11/15** Wait, what?! “Tommy is a 4 year old male gray tabby domestic shorthair cat who is being surrendered because the owner wants him to have a better home.” What was wrong with the home he was in?! Tommy lived with 5 other cats but only TOMMY was singled out to be brought to the ACC and potentially killed. Sad sigh! Tommy is nervous at the ACC because the home he came from was the only home he’d ever known. He will need a loving foster/adoptive home and someone who understands that it might take him more than 0.02 seconds to settle in at his new place, but certainly there must be someone with common sense and enough room for Tommy? Please share him far and wide so his foster/adoptive hero can step up for TOMMY, tonight!
