SAUCY BOY – A1034204
5-2-2015 Staten Island
**SAFE 05/02/15** SAUCY BOY COULD BE YOUR NEW BOY TOY! HE NEEDS A SPECIAL LOVING HOME WITH LOTS OF KINDNESS! Who is this special fellow? His picture seems to say ‘hello there! I am a SAUCY BOY-but not really!’ He isn’t, either. He was gentle and patient and quite wonderful during his evaluation, easy going and mellow! He lived in his caretaker’s yard for 4 years! Since he was a kitten….however-SAUCY BOY needs a special home because….he is FIV+ and has a Grade III heart murmur which should be checked out by a good vet. This might mean nothing-cats can and do have wonderful lives with heart murmurs and being FIV+ has done him no harm as he’s a healthy weight. But the ACC is not a healthy place for this guy-he needs out by tomorrow because otherwise he’ll be put to sleep! SAUCY BOY is a Staten Island resident-would you consider making this guy one of yours? Come on-take a chance and find out how wonderful this boy is!!! SAVE SAUCY BOY TONIGHT!!!!
