***GONE 08/25/16*** THEY SAY NERO FIDDLED WHILE ROME BURNED – BUT LET’S NOT FIDDLE AROUND WHILE POOR NERO THE CAT GOES TO HIS DEATH AT NOON THURSDAY!! It’s funny how people twist things around to make it look like they did a good deed. Someone “found” this cat but read what the ACC notes actually say,” He is being surrendered to the shelter because he was found as a stray in the Little Italy section of The Bronx. Finder placed some wet food inside of the back of a cat carrier and lured Nero in with it and closed the door. Finder cannot keep. Finder then brought Nero to Animal Care Center’s of NYC.” NERO was LURED into a cat carrier when he was hungry by someone who KNEW they couldn’t keep him. A TRAPPER!!! Call it what it is. NERO was only looking for a free meal and now he is getting a free trip to his death! Do you think it’s a bit of a coincidence too that this “FINDER” is again from the Bronx? Well you be the judge. NERO is NEW HOPE rated because he is upset and stressed in the shelter. Ya think??? Well this healthy 3 yr old may have been someone’s pet but the ACC doesn’t do much for these “found” cats. They warehouse them for 3 days and bam – on the list! NERO DESERVES A CHANCE TO LIVE AND HAVE A HAPPY ENDING TO HIS STORY. PLEASE OFFER TO FOSTER OR ADOPT NERO BY CONTACTING A RESCUE NOW TO PULL HIM TO SAFETY!!
