GINGER – A1083570
Gone - 8-2-2016 Manhattan
**GONE 08/02/16**ANOTHER DIABETIC CAT ABANDONED!! Yes, you heard right….Rather than help their cat lose weight and possibly get GINGER to go into diabetic remission…her owner packed up her diabetes meds and dumped the meds and GINGER at the ACC!! GINGER has only been at the ACC 24 hours and she is already listed!! She is a low energy level, mellow cat who needs the correct diabetic diet and the loss of some weight and she may be able to go off her meds…..BUT SHE WON’T GET THAT CHANCE, IF THEY KILL HER TOMORROW AT NOON! Please consider GINGER and know that there is help for Diabetic Cat Owner through DIABETIC CATS IN NEED. If you want to save GINGER and want to know more, please contact us at [email protected] where we can provide rescue contact info and also contact info for DCIN!!
