*** SAFE 11/13/15 *** ONE YEAR OLD RIVER NEEDS OUR HELP!! RIVER may or may not be a street cat….she IS very unhappy at the ACC but with a slow approach was able to be petted. RIVER like many cats, needs time and patience to blossom. Unfortunately, those are two things that are in short supply at the ACC…..RIVER also has eye conditions that need to be looked at by a competent vet not the grab bag of possibilities tossed out by the ACC vets…..IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A PROJECT, HOW ABOUT SAVING RIVER?? She needs someone who will be in her corner and let her progress at her own rate….CAN YOU BE THAT PURRSON?? APPLY TO FOSTER OR ADOPT AND FIND OUT!!
