***SAFE 08/19/16 ****JUST STARTED TO LIVE LIFE**** 7 weeks and already on Death Row. Let’s repeat that 7 WEEKS and already on Death Row. Why? Because it’s still kitten season and the ACC is inundated with them. Meet Edgar, a female cat with a male name. Just goes to show you names mean nothing. Edgar has been on DOH hold since 3 August, now, she made the euth list. Edgar has not even started to live life, now her life is being threatened to be extinguished. Edgar has some stiff competition tonight, 51 other cats. She needs some help to make it out alive. Help this girl see her first birthday, share her now before it is too late. The ACC does not discriminate, not even for a kitten.
