SAFFRON – A1084440
Safe - 8-25-2016 Brooklyn
**SAFE 08/25/16** DRUM ROLL PLEASE…..the IRRESPONSIBLE OWNER OF THE YEAR AWARD goes to WHOEVER USED TO OWN SAFFRON. Because not only did SAFFRON wind up at the ACC as a “stray,” but the OTHER cat they got from the ACC was SAGE, who they returned after ONE HOUR for being “too big.” Sage’s status is still unknown, so let’s check out what happened with beautiful SAFFRON. Did they just lose interest in this AVERAGE-rated boy, open the door one fine day, and kick him out? He was found to have flea dirt on his coat and was also missing some teeth, which is sadly NOT a surprise given how perfectly DREADFUL those folks were as pet owners. So, that’s ONE house hold, TWO innocent cats slated to be killed by the ACC, and ZERO foster/adopters in sight for either of them. That scoreboard sucks, any way you slice it, so PLEASE ADVOCATE STRONGLY FOR SAFFRON TONIGHT!
