**SAFE 07/08/16** Another night, another cat who had been GIFTED to someone and is now scheduled to be brutally murdered, tomorrow. Meet CAPTAIN, an immaculate 2-year-old boy who was GIFTED to his most current owner less than a year ago. That person probably didn’t already have a cat because they didn’t WANT one, and when CAPTAIN came into their life, they clearly didn’t view him as a permanent family member. They probably take better care of their sunglasses, than they took of CAPTAIN. He was never taken to the vet during his time with them, they didn’t clean his litter box properly, they never trimmed his nails…. AWFUL. It’s no wonder they didn’t take him into account when they moved, and it’s no wonder they just dumped him at the ACC as casually as they would throw away a broken pair of sunglasses. CAPTAIN is not broken, he is not disposable, he is not something to be haphazardly given away. He is an intelligent, active, friendly, EXPERIENCE-rated cat who liked to be in the same room as his former owner, even though that person probably couldn’t have cared less about that loyalty. CAPTAIN is going to go down the hard way, tomorrow, right after lunch, unless YOU do something to ensure his safety, tonight!
