CIRCUS – A1038868
*** GONE 06/13/15 *** CIRCUS SURE COULD HAVE HAD A BETTER OWNER…..CIRCUS’ former owner didn’t neuter two year old CIRCUS (or his many other cats, as CIRCUS was “home bred”) and allowed CIRCUS to be an inside/outside cat. When CIRCUS developed bad behaviors, the is paragon of ownership relinquished all responsibility and dumped CIRCUS at the ACC saying he would be best in a home with “no other pets”……CIRCUS REALLY NEEDS SOMEONE ON HIS SIDE TONIGHT!! His owner totally failed him but CIRCUS in a cat with GREAT POTENTIAL!! BUT HE ONLY HAS UNTIL TOMORROW TO GET THAT CHANCE!! PLEASE LET THE CIRCUS COME TO YOU TONITE!!
