More info here at Facebook where he was on the “Kill List” over the weekend but is apparently still alive and looking for a new home. Chichi is a male tabby cat and about 7 years old. He has been at the shelter since June 3rd, relinquished due to “moving / family changes /allergies” and sounds like a sweetie. See a better photo here where a shelter volunteer wrote about Chichi:
I like my cats large–the bigger they are, the more there is to love, right? No wonder XL-size Chichi has stolen my heart. This gentle giant clocks in at 17 pounds of tiger-striped sweetness. He’s a staff favorite, a friend to everyone who comes to the cat adoption room, a lover of long naps, and a companion for other cats and dogs–he used to live with them in his former home, before his owners moved and brought him to the Care Center. If you prefer big boys or simply want a feline BFF to curl up with on the couch, you’ve got to meet Chichi!
Chichi’s ID #A0934413. To learn more about the Animal Care & Control (ACC) — New York City’s shelter system — search ACC in the archives. Visit the ACC web site. You can adopt Chichi via Pet Harbor here.
