***GONE 08/19/16***TERRIFIC BROWN AND WHITE TABBY WITH SOCKS DUMPED DUE TO NEW BABY NEEDS NEW “LEASH” ON LIFE! Sad sigh! One year old, Alley is yet another purrfectly healthy feline betrayed by his former family. Alley lived with his owners since he was a young kitten. He was described as playful, mellow and shy. His former peeps claim that he began to have litter box accidents once a new baby arrived but they did not bother to take him to the vet to make sure there were no medical issues or even try behavior mods. So Alley is yet another sad, lonely healthy house cat sitting on death row, hoping, needing and deserving of a miracle. Please make that miracle happen by offering to foster or adopt this betrayed house cat. Alley needs to learn to trust people again and decompress from his most recent stressful experiences and learn to trust people again. Please get in touch with one of our NH partners if you can help. Email our help desk and we will assist you in being Alley’s hero–[email protected] Make the call for this terrific brown and white healthy young tabby NOW!!!

Alley seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment he was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. Alley may require further investigation before placement in a home. He currently does not tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
