TED MEOWSBY – A1052035
Urgent 9-25-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 09/25/15*** 5 MONTH OLD KITTEN TED MEOWSBY WILL DIE BECAUSE HIS FORMER ‘OWNER’ who HAD HIM SINCE BIRTH NEVER SOCIALIZED HIM! There are times one wonders about people who get cats and why. TED MEOWSBY was brought into ACC because he wasn’t ‘socialized’ but that said, his former owner had him since he was 5 months old-which means since he was born, virtually, and never bothered to socialize him. TED MEOWSBY is a scared kitten, but at home was playful and rambunctious and at times fearful. Probably a kitten or cat friend would have helped that alot, but instead of learning more about kittens needs, his former owner has condemned little TED to death….he’s ‘RESCUE ONLY’ and just another black cat, and a ‘challenging’ one on the list. Thats really not fair-TED MEOWSBY really wants to be part of a home, loved, cherished, and treated well. …there have been many scared to death kittens that have, with patience and kindness, become wonderful companions and TED is no different. He’s a baby-not even on this earth a full six months. Will you be brave and offer to foster this frightened, betrayed boy? Please save TED’s LIFE TONIGHT!!!!
