SPIDER – A1054576
Gone 10-17-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 10/17/15 *** ANOTHER CHANCE FOR SPIDER!! 13 years young, SPIDER had been looked after by a Finder that found him as a STRAY! Finder had him 2 months then realized her 2 cats didn’t fare well together. So the Finder brought him to the ACC. No doubt, she was trying to do the right thing but that’s not what happened. Now after living all these years,he just may lose his life at noon tomorrow. Bad as it is, this already NEUTERED guy has possible hyperthyroidism but needs to be checked again! PLEASE offer to FOSTER this guy so a RESCUE can pay for his vetting. Or ADOPT this BEGINNER rated beauty, but prepare yourself to go the distance for his medical care! Either way…please help SPIDER!

For a New Family to Know: Spider used clumping litter in an uncovered litter box. He scratched on furniture. When his previous owner was home Spider would tend to follow her around. He didn’t really play with his previous owner. He ate both wet and dry cat food; the brands were Fancy Feist and Purina. At night he slept on the couch.
