TURKEY – A1085911
Gone - 8-31-2016 Brooklyn
**GONE 08/31/16** “Owner Hospitalized” is the motivating factor behind TARYN-TAMMY-TURKEY-TUNA losing their home. It’s sad to think that these nice cats, who also lived with a pitbull, were completely dependent upon ONE person for their very existence; it’s a shame that friends or family couldn’t have kept these sweet kitties out of harms’ way while the person they love, recovered. It’s a cruel cruel world and anyone who needs more proof of that, need only reflect that these ADOPTABLE, AVERAGE and BEGINNER-rated cats, cats who would be perfect in a foster/adoptive home, are instead going to die brutal deaths tomorrow. Why? Because the ONE agency in NYC who has the contract to make sure they are safe, didn’t do their job. Please read the shelter notes carefully, since TARYN and TAMMY are adult cats and TURKEY and TUNA are young kittens…..and then work super diligently to make sure all 4 of these exceptional felines are saved by foster/adopters, tonight!
