PERIDOT – A1037741
**SAFE 06/12/15** The August birthstone is Peridot, but this wonderful cat by the same name will be lucky to live that long. Why would that be the case? Because PERIDOT has been brought into the ACC as a stray, the “shelter” couldn’t be bothered to find a new home for him, and now this AVERAGE-rated sweetie has been slated to be killed, tomorrow. Peridot has something going on with his mouth which means that he will need to see a competent vet, but since the germ-infested ACC gave him their cold, he was going to need to see a vet anyway. This otherwise-healthy 2-year-old boy should have a smooth recovery and a long, happy life, provided a foster/adopter does right by him tonight.

I am a male gray and white domestic sh mix. The shelter thinks I am about 2 YEARS old.
