ALEX – A1040893
***GONE 07/09/15*** AMAZING ALEX IS A VERY HANDSOME TUXIE BOY WHO NEEDS A DEATH ROW PARDON TONIGHT – OR HE WILL DIE BECAUSE HE CAUGHT THE SHELTER COLD! ALEX is a very handsome guy! He was dumped because his ex owner says he bites people. Yet, here in the ACC, ALEX displayed BEGINNER qualities and if it were not for the accusation his owner made, he would be BEGINNER rated. Sadly, ALEX is EXPERIENCE rated and because he caught the shelter cold, they slapped him onto the euth list tonight. ALEX was said to be relaxed around the child in the home, although that is who he is accused of biting. It sounds like there may be more to this story than we are hearing here and ALEX may have just been playing rough. ALEX is already neutered and would love to be someone’s furever kitty. If you can give this playful, but independent cat a place to be king of his domain, PLEASE CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO PULL HIM TO SAFETY!
