BENJAMIN – A1059913
Urgent 12-16-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: A Pathway To Hope Please honor your pledges: www.apathwaytohope.org
***SAFE 12/16/15** ‘NUZZLED HAND WHEN TOUCHED’ so starts off BENJAMIN’S ASSESSMENT….does he look poorly to you? This sweet mango tabby and white guy has a bad cold. Like people, cats respond to all the good things when they have a cold-antibiotics, fluids, good food and love-chicken soup? We bet BENJAMIN won’t say no. But this guy is in a great deal of trouble-he will be killed tomorrow despite his gentle nature and this time of year people are looking to adopt bright eyed baby kittens, the ACC will kill this gentle guy unless that is you offer to foster him. A rescue will help him, but you need to understand that BENJAMIN needs an offer of a bed and breakfast for that. What does it take to foster? A bathroom to put the cat in for a bit. You could in a pinch even use a dog crate, but to do that you must come forward and say ‘yes’. The rescue will pay for poor Benjamin’s vetting-you supply the TLC, love, and maybe some chicken soup…cat style that is…please save this sweet boy who so wants to live!
