NANCY – A1082624
Safe - 8-6-2016 Brooklyn Rescue: Magnificat Cat Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://magnificatrescue.org/donate/
***SAFE 08/06/16***BEGINNER-rated NANCY is a pretty 3-year-old lady who was found in the company of her 2-month-old kitten, then brought to the ACC. That was just a few, short days ago and already the ACC has decided her life should end tomorrow. What’s the rush? Well, the ACC might have a veterinarian on staff, and that veterinarian might be aware that antibiotics can cure the shelter cold; there’s even a decent chance the ACC has antibiotics sitting around somewhere…..although regular followers of this page can probably remember some times when they didn’t. The equation of sniffling cat + staff veterinarian + antibiotics on hand does NOT equal “Nancy getting the treatment she needs from the ACC.” Quite the opposite! The equation of sniffling cat + staff veterinarian + antibiotics on hand ends up equaling NANCY BEING KILLED TOMORROW AT NOON, with the remainder of “antibiotics left, untouched, on the shelf” hanging around to mock those sad, sad proceedings. The only help that NANCY can count on, is whatever help YOU are willing to give her. CAN NANCY COUNT ON YOU TONIGHT?
