**SAFE 03/28/16** BooBoo is not doing well in his new environment. In fact he is doing awful. Booboo was brought into the shelter after her human went into the hospital and there was no one who would be able to take care of Booboo. At 8 years old Booboo is not handling the new change gracefully, she thrashes in her cage and will not let anyone tough her. Do you blame her/ Her life has been turned completely upside down. Booboo has no idea what is going on and is in defense mode. She has no idea who to trust. Booboo’s current state should not be the reason she should die. But with 30 other cats on the list, Booboo has a lot of competition. Booboo needs to be pulled by a rescue, but that is workable. She just needs a chance. Email the help desk at [email protected] for assistance.
