AZUL – A1058473
Urgent 11-28-2015 Brooklyn
**GONE 11/28/15** NEW HOPE RESCUE needed for AZUL, a stunning 10-month-old kitten who is going to die tomorrow because her (or his) former owner has never heard of a scratching post. That’s right, the ACC has no idea what gender this kitten is, and his former owner doesn’t realize that kittens can use a scratching post, and thereby live in perfect harmony with furniture. Rather than anyone in AZUL’s life having a shred of common sense, AZUL was slapped into the shelter, shoved into a cage, traumatized under the heading of a “behavioral evaluation,” and is now scheduled to die tomorrow. Ridiculous! Only a foster or adopter who works with a NEW HOPE rescue, can save AZUL tonight!
