DINA – A1040782
***GONE 06/22/15*** DELIGHTFUL DINA WAS DUMPED FOR ALLERGIES BUT WE FIND OUT SHE MAY HAVE A BEGINNINGS OF A MAMMARY TUMOR – DINA NEEDS HELP NOW AS THE ACC IS PLANNING TO KILL THIS SUPER SWEET CAT AT NOON!! DINA was dumped by her family for allergies. She was said to be super affectionate, meowing for attention, and gentle with children even as much as following them around. DINA seems like the all around most PURRFECT kitty you could want to have!! In her behavior assessment she was rubbing, seeking attention and got a great AVERAGE rating. But the ACC found a soft spot which could be the beginnings of a mammary tumor. Early stages are very treatable and we wonder if this was the real reason this cat was dumped. DINA needs to be seen of course by a competent vet as the ACC isn’t known for accuracy. But first we need to save her life. DINA IS A SUPER AFFECTIONATE GIRL WHO WOULD BE A REGULAR PURR-BUG ONCE YOU GET HER HOME. CONTACT A RESCUE TO PULL HER NOW – DON’T LET THE ACC MAKE HER ANOTHER STATISTIC TO TALLY TOMORROW!!
