PUSKE – A1042671
7-25-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE07/25/15*** CHIRPING, HEADBUTTING TABBY BOY IS GREAT WITH KIDS AND CATS, BUT WILL DIE BECAUSE HE SNEEZED – PLEASE GRANT PUSKE A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Super-affectionate six-year-old brown tabby and white boy PUSKE was sadly surrendered to the kill-happy ACC due to his old owner’s PERSONAL PROBLEMS. At home, Puske was PURR-fect: “Puske lived with 5 adults and children ages 2, 10, 12, and 13 years old. He is relaxed, affectionate and respectful towards everyone in the household. Puske lived with another cat that was a female and he was playful and tolerant of the cat. He is indoors only and activity level is very high. Puske is mellow, playful, and affectionate. He likes to be picked up and held. He likes to play with balls, strings, and mice toys.” Did I mention that Puske is ALREADY NEUTERED? This charming boy CHIRPED and HEADBUTTED his way to a near-perfect AVERAGE behavior rating, but will DIE at noon tomorrow, just because he SNEEZED! The ACC prefers to KILL rather than CURE, but let’s reverse that dreadful ending for this sweet boy (who is ALREADY NEUTERED). Please start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt adorable tabby lovebug PUSKE! If you can’t save PUSKE yourself, please SHARE his sad story and PLEDGE for his rescue!
