DR PEPPER – A1048110
***GONE 08/21/15*** POOR 9 YEAR OLD DR PEPPER WAS DUMPED BY HIS OWNER AFTER LIVING WITH HIM SINCE HE WAS ONLY 4 WEEKS OLD – NOW THIS ALMOST SENIOR BOY WILL DIE FOR HIS FEAR AND A COLD!! How would you feel if you lived your entire life thinking someone loved you and you were a family member and then one day – BAM – you are discarded like an old pair of shoes? Well that’s what happened to poor DR PEPPER here, a sweet neutered boy who only a few days ago had a home. This cat was described by his ex-owner as being shy, mellow, and affectionate and loved to play with cat toys and little balls. Yet this wasn’t enough to keep him from tossing him into the kill shelter, knowing there was little chance of him making it out alive. DR PEPPER is a SWEET cat and is frightened and sad in the shelter. Now he is destined for DEATH unless someone like YOU will give him a home. Older cats make great companions and DR PEPPER would love to be yours! CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO SAVE HIS LIFE AND CHANGE THE ENDING TO HIS STORY TO A NEW BEGINNING!
