MILO – A1035345
*SAFE 05/10/15** Reading MILO’s biography shows the clear difference between a cat at home, and a cat under incredible stress at the shelter. This neutered 6-year-old boy is reported as being a laid-back rockstar at home, but he’s nervous enough at the shelter that he now carries a New Hope rating. MILO should unwind and return to his rockstar status once he gets into a foster/adoptive home, and for that, he needs a New Hope rescue partner tonight!
