RESPECT – A1048836
8-28-2015 Staten Island
*** SAFE 08/28/15 *** RESPECT is a NEUTERED 14-week-old kitten who was brought into the ACC in a trap, and who was utterly traumatized by that circumstance. He comes by his New Hope rating honestly because he is scared out of his mind. Can you blame him? He is just learning about the world and nothing has prepared him to be caught in a cage, brought to the ACC, and put his best foot forward. Heck, even cats who are much older and normally friendly, react to the ACC in the same way Respect has: defensively. This is a GOOD kitten caught in an unwinnable, BAD situation! Please help a New Hope rescue save RESPECT by pledging toward his care, sharing him far and wide, and offering to foster/adopt if you can!
