MICHAEL – A1056922
Urgent 11-9-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
***SAFE 11/09/15*** Handsome NEUTERED boy, MICHAEL, is “an established neighborhood cat that children on the block often play with. Finder stated that she noticed Michael coughing and was afraid he might be sick so she brought him in.” She had been feeding him since SUMMER so Michael must have trusted her—why didn’t she bring him to a VET? The ACC has no intention of “curing” him with anything other than a lethal injection, which would be a SHAME since this guy has an AVERAGE rating! Please advocate vigorously for MICHAEL tonight!
