Rescue Hero Story About Andy
Hometown: Astoria, NY
My Rescue Story:
Andy is the most adorable kitty I have ever met. I rescued him when he was only 4 weeks old, and though the vet said he wouldn't make it, Andy was a trooper from the start. My apartment in Astoria was too small to keep him -- along with two 14-year-old cats who never liked him -- and at week 9, I had to give him up. He lives in Brooklyn now with another family, but he will always be MY baby.
