***SAFE 03/17/16*** CRYING FOR HIS OWNER SINCE JUNE 2015 – SPOT’S OWNER’S SPOUSE HAS NOW DUMPED THIS POOR KITTY AT THE KILL HAPPY SHELTER WHERE HE WILL NOW DIE TOO!! Talk about a sad, heart wrenching story!! Poor SPOT was VERY attached to his owner who passed away last June. The wife of the owner said since they SPOT has been crying every night since he was very attached to him. She claims she is not getting any sleep now and cannot care for him any longer. So rather than finding him a new owner who will love him, she dumped poor SPOT at the ACC where he is terrified and was PUNISHED WITH A NEW HOPE RATING. SPOT was a loving pet and was playful and affectionate. Now his grief was double whammied by abandonment in a scary shelter. CAN SOMEONE OUT THERE OPEN THEIR HEART AND HOME FOR THIS BOY? ALL HE WANTS IS LOVE – HE MISSES HIS OLD OWNER BUT WE KNOW ONCE OUT OF THE SHELTER AND INTO THE ARMS OF A LOVING NEW CAT PARENT, SPOT WILL RELAX AND GIVE PURRS AND KITTY LOVE BACK!
