***SAFE 10/28/16*** ANOTHER CHANCE TONIGHT FOR PLATY!! PLEASE MAKE IT COUNT! PLATY WAS TRAPPED AND DUMPED IN THE ACC – NOW WITH THE SHELTER COLD, SHE STANDS TO LOSE HER LIFE AT NOON! PLATY’S latest medical exam shows she has a URI and some nasal congestion – nothing that antibiotics cant cure. The ACC is also recommending a further look at her scabbing on her face – she did test negative for ringworm but they suggest a follow up if rescued!! PLATY is another frightened cat, trapped for no reason, who is going to be killed at noon unless a kind and patient person will offer to foster or adopt. PLATY allowed petting and handling but she is tense and just trying to hide and get away. She needs a place to decompress and relax and only YOU can give that to her. PLATY like many cats who leave the ACC may have been a lost or abandoned pet. She may surprise you and be a completely different cat once you get her home. But you will never know until you make that commitment to save her life. PLEASE OFFER TO FOSTER OR ADOPT PLATY. IT IS NOT HER FAULT THE SHELTER IS TRYING TO KILL HER FOR A VERY TREATABLE COLD. MAKE THE CALL NOW TO A RESCUE GROUP TO PULL THIS KITTY TO SAFETY!!
