NIBBLES – A1061979
Safe - 1-7-2016 Staten Island Rescue: K9Kastle Please honor your pledges: http://www.k9kastle.org/#!donate/ca4p
**SAFE 01/07/16** This entire group of cats has been tarred with the NEW HOPE ONLY brush, because they came into the ACC from a home where there had been ringworm. Despite that fact that NIBBLES has a BEGINNER rating, and LEOPARD has an EXPNOCHILD rating, this entire crew—NIBBLES, LEOPARD, FRED and MUSTACIO—can only be saved from the killing room tomorrow, if a NEW HOPE RESCUE group steps up for them tonight. And why did these four beauties end up at the shelter in the first place? Well, because the same people who exposed these cats to ringworm, also decided they had “too many pets” and apparently, rounded up an armful and brought them to the ACC. Please read their biographies carefully, just for the grim satisfaction of seeing that the ACC copy/pastes medical and behavioral notes across all 4 of these cats, rather than take the time to get to know them as individuals. Wonder if they will all share the same black plastic freezer bag after the ACC kills them tomorrow? Please make sure that question goes unanswered by finding a NEW HOPE RESCUE to save all four of these beauties, tonight!
