DUCHESS – A1060562
Urgent 12-19-2015 Manhattan
***SAFE 12/19/15*** YET ANOTHER SENIOR! There’s just something really wrong with a world that can allow the treatment (or lack of) that leaves a cat in the condition that DUCHESS entered the ACC in! And yet ,the ACC continues to play the part and not take on responsibility for the care of this 15 year old gent! He came in an dehydrated, emaciated, geriatric. From his high kidney numbers, it appears that DUCHESS may have kidney disease though a competent vet visit is needed for that kind of determination. If you do one thing right in your life, take this AVERAGE rated guy and give him some life! If you FOSTER, the RESCUE will foot the bill, you may also ADOPT him through the Public Adoption Site but be prepared to take on responsibility for the care he so desperately needs! No matter which way, he just needs you! PLEASE, offer to take DUCHESS and be his queen! He deserves the royal treatment!
