ORCHID – A1040228
6-25-2015 Staten Island Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
***SAFE 06/25/15*** ORCHID DOESN’T DESERVE TO DIE FOR BEING HOMELESS-and yet he will without your help! HE was brought in as a ‘stray’ to the Staten Island ACC. Caught in a trap, he was scared to death-as any cat who doesn’t know what is happening will be. Staten Island is a strange place-there are cat lovers and cat haters and it appears that ORCHID ran into and was trapped by a cat hater! ORCHID NEEDS YOU TONIGHT! He hasn’t been social, but many ‘fractious’ and ‘probably feral’ cats get given a bad rap when they are simply petrified. Please-do you love the Miracles of the world? Pick ORCHID and save his life….this boy needs you desperately. He’s on a large list and he’s a cat that needs someone special, someone willing to let him come around in his own time. Can you be that person?

(3) Reaction to touch: Allows limited petting, growls but does not strike. (3) Reaction to being picked up: Did not attempt. Notes: Orchid came to the shelter as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment.
