**SAFE 08/02/16** VEGETA CAME INTO THE SHELTER WITH 3 KITTENS AND ANOTHER CAT NAMED TRUNKS WHO IS ALREADY GONE – FIRST SHE WAS SPAY ABORTED – AND THEN SHE TESTED POSITIVE FOR FIV! NOW SHE NEEDS A RESCUE ANGEL TO ESCAPE HER DEATH BY LETHAL INJECTION AT NOON!! VEGETA arrived at the ACC with 3 kittens who were about 2 months old (not listed) and she was thought to be pregnant again. She was spay-aborted, but then they found out she tested positive for FIV. So now this poor girl is going to be killed after all she’s been through. FIV is not a death sentence and FIV cats can certainly live with non-FIV cats as it is not something easily transmitted. VEGETA was given an AVERAGE rating because she is sweet and was friendly and allowed all petting and handling. She is also was given a really awful name to make matters worse! This kitty deserves to live and have a happy ending to her story. Please offer to foster this sweetie or adopt her. You will have a friend for life. Email [email protected] for rescue contact info. Hurry before it’s too late!
