***GONE 09/01/16*** AFFECTIONATE, SUPER FRIENDLY BEGINNER CAT RED WAS DUMPED BY HIS OWNER FOR PET HEALTH BECAUSE HE DIDN’T WANT TO TAKE HIM TO THE VET!!! How cruel and mean!! RED’s owner claimed he wasn’t eating and losing weight but did NOT take him to the vet. Instead he dumped this 5 year old super lovable purring cat at at the kill happy ACC. RED may not have been eating because – DUH – he was found to have bleeding gums, and severe dental disease. RED was interested in food but may not have been eating because he couldn’t!! Now, the ACC won’t treat or test him, they will KILL him. RED is only 5 – he deserves a chance to get a full vet evaluation and have his mouth treated. On his assessment this sweet boy was kneading, purring and loving up every bit of petting and attention. RED’s owner said he lived with a 4 year old child and was affectionate and gentle when playing with him. RED was also around dogs and was ok with them. THIS IS A PURRFECTLY WONDERFUL CAT WHO JUST NEEDS SOME MEDICAL. CAN SOMEONE FOSTER SO RED CAN LIVE AND HAVE A HAPPILY EVER AFTER!! PLEASE HURRY AND EMAIL THE HELP DESK AT [email protected] FOR RESCUE CONTACT INFO NOW.
