SAFE 04/14/15 – OTIS – A1031588 – MANHATTAN, NY
**SECOND CHANCE** BEGINNER-RATED 14-POUND NEUTERED “STRAY” LOVEBUG NEEDS A LOVING CAT PARENT – PLEASE GRANT OTIS A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Plush-velvety black and white boy OTIS, five years young, was dumped into the kill-happy ACC as a NEUTERED “STRAY”, but strays DO NOT weigh 14 pounds and act so SWEET and FRIENDLY! Our man Otis earned a PERFECT BEGINNER rating for his PURRS and the EAGER way he BEGGED for LOVE! But Otis will die at noon tomorrow, an INNOCENT VICTIM of the notorious ACC kitty cold and a badly broken shelter system. Please start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt adorable OTIS! If you can’t save OTIS yourself, please SHARE his sad story and PLEDGE for his rescue!
