MIA – A1052489
Urgent 9-29-2015 Staten Island
***SAFE 09/29/15*** DECLAWED SENIOR TABBY SWEETIE, GREAT WITH KIDS BUT DUMPED FOR ALLERGIES, WILL NOW DIE DUE TO HER FEAR – PLEASE GRANT MIA A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Marvelous MIA, an 11-year-old brown tabby and white beauty, finds herself BETRAYED by her old owners, who dumped this sweet senior elder-cat into the kill-happy ACC for ALLERGIES. At home, Mia was PURRfect: “Mia comes from a home with children and she interacted with them in a playful gentle manner. Mia is described as having a low activity level and is very independent, mostly keeping to herself. Mia enjoys having her coat brushed and being picked up. She enjoys ball toys. When she does play, she plays very gently with you. Mia enjoys sleeping on the floor or your bed.” Her old owners also described Mia as “MELLOW”. But in the scary shelter, poor Mia is TERRIFIED, so she reacted defensively when poked and prodded with the scary fake hand used for cat behavior tests. The ACC wrote her off as a New Hope Only behavior problem, to be “CURED” with a lethal injection at noon tomorrow. Please don’t let them MURDER this dear misjudged senior! Mia will gentle down as soon as she escapes the ACC hellhole. Please start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt betrayed senior girl MIA from the approved New Hope rescue groups! If you can’t save MIA yourself, please SHARE her sad story and PLEDGE for her rescue!
