MEME – A1046353
** GONE 08/18/15 ** SECOND CHANCE FOR A FIRST-RATE BOY!! Gentle MEME is a neutered 4-year-old boy who had never been in a car until his former owner brought him to the ACC. That person claimed to have “no time” to care for him, but anyone who thinks that through is going to realize the SHELTER has NO TIME for these cats, either. It’s no wonder MEME has been stressed out at the shelter, as his EXPERIENCE rating reflects. Read his owner surrender notes to meet the calm, loving, forgiving boy he REALLY is, and then work your butt off to find a foster/adopter for MEME tonight!
