***SAFE 01/02/16*** TERRIFIC TIGG DUMPED FOR NEW BABY EVEN THOUGH HE IS TOLERANT WITH CHILDREN!! Oh, the irony!! TIGG is a NEUTERED, three year old who finds himself abandoned at the ACC…TIGG was a loving family cat who likes to drink from the sink and his great nemesis was dogs who he did not like….So how does this nice family cat get a NEW HOPE rating?? The question we ask almost every nite….TIGG is undoubtedly devastated by his betrayal and since the ACC is a noisy place and there are dogs, TIGG is probably beside himself….CAN YOU HELP OUT THIS CREAMSICLE GUY?? IF SO, PLEASE CONTACT A NEW HOPE RESCUE AND APPLY TO FOSTER OR ADOPT HIM NOW!! LOVE GOES A LONG WAY….SAVE TIGG TONIGHT!!
