**SAFE 03/29/16** WHO MOVES AND DUMPS THEIR 20 YEAR OLD KITTY AT THE KILL HAPPY ACC? ROYAL BETRAYAL FOR POOR TINY – AND NOW BECAUSE SHE IS AFRAID AND HAS THE KITTY COOTIES- SHE WILL BE KILLED! Sometimes we cannot overcome the astonishment that someone could have a loyal loving cat for 20 years and then – bingo – they move away and just discard their pet like nothing! Is there no endearment? TINY was said to be 20 years old by her owner. The ACC said on intake that due to her physical shape, she may be more like 10 – 15 yrs old. Whatever they case, TINY was easy to handle at intake but since has realized she is in a bad place and is now afraid and most likely very very upset at being abandoned like this. She was not allowing the assessor to pet her and hissed. This was rewarded with a New Hope rating and a trip to tonight’s euth list. TINY was someone’s loyal pet and certainly would be devastated at being abandoned. Who could blame her? WE NEED TO GET TINY OUT OF THE ACC AND INTO A NICE RETIREMENT HOME WHERE SHE CAN SOAK UP SUN ON A WINDOWSILL AND HAVE SOME TLC AND LOVE. CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO PULL TINY TO SAFETY!!
