NETTLE – A1082820
Safe - 8-1-2016 Manhattan
**SAFE 08/01/16**NETTLE NEEDS AT THE VERY LEAST, A FOSTER OR ADOPTER… SHE’S BEEN HIT BY A CAR AND LIKELY THAT MOVES HER UP TO THE FRONT OF THE “KILL LINE”! NETTLE has seen better days… specifically any day that came before she was hit by a car! She has, in layman’s terms – a fractured pelvis. She’s on pain meds or at least that’s what the ACC is saying. However, with their track record who knows if that’s even true! Through it all this brave, 1 year old received a perfect, BEGINNER RATING! But we all know that through her pain is a plan to kill her anyway unless someone steps up! She may need surgery…but that’s not a given. What she needs first and foremost is a FOSTER, and with that comes free vetting paid by the pulling rescue. You can also ADOPT, but PLEASE…make sure you can go the distance for her medical care! She’s YOUNG and can possibly get through this and come out just fine. But for that to happen, she needs a place to rest and recover. A place where she doesn’t have to fear for her life… while in agonizing pain! PLEASE, take her and PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE….keep her INDOORS! This is one of the many reasons to keep a cat where they belong… INDOORS!
