BLINKY – A1085785
Gone - 8-21-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 08/21/16*** ULTIMATE BETRAYAL FOR BLINKY WHO WILL NOW DIE BECAUSE SHE IS AFRAID!! BLINKY was described by her ex owners as a shy, friendly, quiet and affectionate. Knowing this, they still dumped her like a hot potato when they moved to a smaller apartment. BLINKY is not a happy kitty over being tossed to the curb like this, and she was not at all enthusiastic when the assessor showed up with his fake plastic hand. She only hissed and retreated – which basically means – I really am not in the mood right now – and was punished with a NEW HOPE rating. BLINKY is a good girl- liked to play and sit on her owner’s lap. Yet now, sitting betrayed in her cage, she is sad, lonely, and wondering what she did to deserve death! PLEASE BE BLINKY’S HERO. GIVE HIS YOUNG GIRL A CHANCE FOR A HAPPY ENDING TO HER STORY. CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO ADOPT OR FOSTER!!
