ALKATRAZE – A1042396
***GONE 07/06/15*** ALKATRAZE AND AMIGO ARE MOST LIKELY SIBLINGS WHO WERE DUMPED WITH 2 OTHER HOUSEMATES FOR THEIR OWNERS PERSONAL PROBLEMS – NOW THESE TWO PERFECTLY HEALTHY KITTENS WILL DIE FOR THEIR FEAR!!! How is it that when someone has PERSONAL problems, the cats get dumped? These two kitties ALKATRAZE and AMIGO had nothing to do with these problems, yet they were dumped along with 2 other cats who are not listed tonight in the kill happy shelter. Both of these kittens, who are only 9 months old, are terrified at being abandoned and separated from their siblings. Don’t let the new hope rating scare you away from adopting them as they were HOUSE PETS who lived in a home. Both cats were described as being friendly, playful, affectionate and quiet. That is what they are like IN A HOME – not in the scary shelter where they got an unfair NEW HOPE rating. GET THESE TWO KITTIES OUT OF HERE AND INTO A HOME AND THEY WILL BE JUST FINE AND GO BACK TO BEING THE PLAYFUL KITTENS THEY REALLY ARE. CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO PULL THEM BOTH TO SAFETY!!
