***SAFE 03/06/16*** BRET WAS MINDING HIS OWN BUSINESS WHEN SOMEONE WHO SAW HIM JUST THAT MORNING CARTED HIM INTO ACC…People are well meaning, but BRET could easily have been someone’s cat. The person who found him decided because they were ‘TNR’ certified that instead of getting him neutered and trying to find a home for him themself, they’d cart him into ACC to get a home…but it didn’t happen even though BRET is a gentleman guy who enjoyed being petted and loved on. It state’s he’s FIV+, but this means nothing-FIV+ cats live long happy lives when kept indoors and as FIV+ is remarkably difficult to transmit, they CAN live with other cats that aren’t FIV. Did this scare away people? It’s sad if it has because now this otherwise healthy 2 year old boy faces death tomorrow because someone found him outside and decided to bring him into ACC. Please, if you can, consider saving this sweet boy tomorrow. He deserves a chance to have a home-he’s a great guy who purrs and wants petting but doesn’t deserve to be killed for being picked up as a vagrant.
