ROCKY – A1054119
Gone 10-14-2015 Brooklyn
**GONE 10/14/15** ANOTHER “GIFTED” CAT SLATED TO DIE—and check this out—beautiful ROCKY was gifted to someone who is ALLERGIC TO CATS! Wonderful (not). This cat really IS wonderful, but the circumstances of how he came to the ACC are not wonderful. ROCKY has been good with kids aged 7 and up, and he maintained enough poise at the ACC to earn a nice EXPERIENCE rating on his behavioral evaluation. This guy needs someone to step up as a foster/adopter, and that person should give him a strong minute to decompress in his new surroundings….. he should settle into a new home and then be right as rain. Please make all of that happen for ROCKY, tonight, by sharing him far and wide immediately!
