Gone - 1-6-2016 Manhattan
**GONE 01/06/15 ** ANOTHER OWNER DUMP! How can someone sleep at night after DUMPING their cat of his whole 8 years? Particularly because these owners decided to move to a place that did not include their cat! Then go on to mention that after the owner had a baby,IVORY started scratching the furniture, something they claim, IVORY hadn’t done before! HMMMM… Have they ever heard of a scratching post? Or jealousy, due to the NEW baby taking the place of the”old” BABY! Some people don’t deserve to have animals or kids! So now,since poor IVORY has been ripped from the only home she has ever know and is understandably scared out of her mind,is rated RESCUE ONLY! Please,offer to FOSTER or ADOPT this GORGEOUS girl! Can you be the “ebony” to her IVORY? If so contact a NEW HOPE RESCUE now!
