HERBIE – A1036285
***SAFE 05/24/15***HERBIE THE BEGINNER LOVEBUG NEEDS YOU! A staff member writes, “Herbie was given his name because he’s such a lovebug! This super friendly guy was found wandering the streets of Brooklyn when he started to follow one of the AC&C staff members to work. Herbie let her pick him up and be carried a few more blocks to the shelter, nuzzling and purring the whole time. This handsome guy just wants someone to love and cuddle with that will keep him safe and warm in his new home. Can you be the one that makes this former street cat into the lap cat he wants to be?” Herbie the delicious 6 yo creamsicle is positively purrfect and can be reserved online tonight or contact a NH rescue for assistance with transportation. It doesn’t get any better than this delicious gingerbread man who is ready to shower his lucky new purrson with lots of love and licks. Could that special someone be you?
