MARCUS – A1086430
Gone - 8-24-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 08/24/16*** MARCUS WAS BROUGHT IN WITH WHAT SEEMED TO BE AN INJURY BUT ALL THE ACC COULD DO WAS WAREHOUSE HIM TIL THEY COULD PUT HIM ON THE EUTH LIST!!! MARCUS is a 7 year old tabby boy who was supposedly “found” in the Bronx and brought to the ACC. Marcus came in with his ear bleeding and a swollen face. All the ACC could say was that he appeared to be in pain and they would consult vet for pain medication. Wow – that’s ALL they could do for this handsome tabby? It seems to me that cat’s with swollen faces and bleeding ears were either a victim of some kind of abuse or else they are ill. Nothing was done here for poor MARCUS and yet they wonder why he hissed. So poor MARCUS, who may not be feeling well, or may be in pain – hissed at the assessor and was PUNISHED with a NEW HOPE only rating. This is the best that the Animal “Could -care -less” Center could do for MARCUS. THERE MUST BE SOMEONE OUT THERE WHO DOESN’T FEEL MARCUS SHOULD DIE FOR NO REASON AT ALL. PLEASE GIVE HIM A CHANCE FOR A HAPPY ENDING BY CONTACTING A RESCUE GROUP TO PULL HIM TO SAFETY. MARCUS NEEDS TO SEE A VET AND WE BET HE WILL BE A TOTALLY DIFFERENT CAT WHEN HE IS IN A LOVING HOME. HE ONLY HAS TIL NOON. DON’T WAIT!
