SCOTTY – A1043875
***GONE 07/22/15*** SWEET SCOTTY SURRENDERED FOR ‘PERSONAL PROBLEMS OF OWNER’ Now has his own-This neutered and gentle 3 year old boy is listed as ‘liking to follow owner around, loves to play, likes and has good relationship with other cats’. SCOTTY really sounds like the perfect little cat, and he was fearful and obviously confused at being surrendered. He allowed himself to be petted spoken to, but frightened, when he tried to ‘escape’ the lovely, professional ACC staff netted him and dragged him back with a pole-lovely! Can someone please rescue this poor boy? He’s neutered, and he’s a young cat, who would do just fine with other cats. He’d be an easy foster, and people love orange boys! Or why not reach out and say ‘I’m beaming you up, SCOTTY because ACC really sucks!’ Save SCOTTY TODAY!!!! He really needs you!
