BARNEY – A1051125
Urgent 9-16-2015 Manhattan
**GONE 09/16/15** BARNEY is a neutered 4-year-old boy who was found as a kitten by his former owner, and brought in out of the cold. That was more than three years ago and there is no doubt that Barney must have loved his former owner deeply, which is why he is SO rattled and frightened at the shelter! The person he loved most in the world, is also the person who betrayed his trust and signed him over to the ACC. Barney has been terrified and defensive, which has earned him a NEW HOPE rating. Cats normally settle down given a quiet, supportive environment and plenty of TLC. Anyone who can foster/adopt BARNEY and who is willing to work with a NEW HOPE RESCUE in order to do so, should message [email protected] right now. Otherwise, please pledge toward his rescue and share BARNEY far and wide, tonight!
