LILA – A1058992
Urgent 12-2-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 12/02/15*** LILA is a 5 month old kitten, surrendered by the Finder that had her from 9 weeks ago. No reason is stated why the Finder decided to DUMP this baby but the Finder did”mention” that LILA had bit her, some 10 days ago. Anybody ever been bit by a kitten? It tickles more than it hurts, if at all! In hindsight, one would applaude LILA for biting the finder… After all, this Finder did DUMP her in a shelter that just aches to kill cats! Offer to FOSTER or ADOPT LILA. And show the bite mark that one would guess, you will never get. Wiping one’s conscience with a lie like that is typical of a cat dumper!
