SINDEL – A1034926
***SAFE 05/13/15*** STUNNING OLDER BEAUTY IS PERFECTLY HEALTHY, BUT THE ACC WILL KILL HER ANYWAY – PLEASE GRANT SINDEL A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Exquisitely beautiful SINDEL, a seven-year-old brown tabby stunner, looks like she has some MAINE COON in her breeding! This lovely girl was dumped into the kill-happy ACC for supposedly ATTACKING PEOPLE, but we all know that cats DO NOT attack FOR NO REASON. Was Sindel mistreated or provoked? Sindel has MUCH to recommend her, as she’s ALREADY SPAYED, has perfect litter box and scratching post manners, and she loves to “play with balls, wand toys, and catnip toys”. Sindel ALLOWED ALL HANDLING during intake, but now she realizes she’s been utterly betrayed, so her FEAR has taken over. She reacted defensively during her behavior test, so the ACC WROTE HER OFF as a New Hope Only behavior problem, to be “CURED” with a lethal injection at noon tomorrow, despite the fact that poor Sindel is PERFECTLY HEALTHY! Please see beyond her fear; look into her heart and see the scared, sweet cat hiding within, and give her another chance at a loving forever home. Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt scared older beauty SINDEL from the approved New Hope rescue groups! If you can’t save SINDEL yourself, please SHARE her sad story and PLEDGE for her rescue!
