PETER – A1045381
8-4-2015 Manhattan Rescue: Posh Pets Please honor your pledges: http://poshpetsrescue.org/
***SAFE 08/04/15*** SECOND CHANCE FOR THIS PUMPKIN MAN!! MAKE IT COUNT!! PERFECT PETER PURRS, HEADBUMPS and ENJOYS petting from his Assessor-so why is this big Tangerine Dream at risk? PETER was turned in for ‘child conflict’ but it states he hasn’t lived with children. A little confusing. This former owner only had him 4 years and one would wonder if they knew Peter would wind up on death row if they would have done this to a 15 year old Orangie guy. PETER really sounds like the perfect cat, and he gets on great with other cats. He’s sort of a ‘couch potato’ but that could be changed if he found himself with another family, in another home-someone who would make sure this wonderful guy was a ‘forever and ever’ cat. Can you do that? Age matters not-don’t judge PETER by his age, but by his head butting, purring manners and kindly ways. SAVE PETER TONIGHT!
