ASPEN – A1039540
***GONE 06/14/15*** ASPEN IS PERFECTLY HEALTHY BUT WILL DIE FOR HIS FEAR IN THE SHELTER!! ASPEN came into the shelter as a stray. The ACC can’t seem to decide if he is 2 years old or 4 years old. They didn’t even bother to do a medical evaluation either saying he is NORMAL and also left out the behavior eval too – really? But the did state that he was fearful in the shelter environment and was hiding in the back of his cage. ASPEN was trapped in a park area near a school. He is terrified and the NEW HOPE rating he got was due to the fact this poor guy was living free minding his business when he may have wandered into a trap baited with some food when he was hungry. The ACC had no intention of working with this cat and just warehoused him til tonight’s euth list. REMEMBER NEW HOPE RATINGS MEASURE THE FEAR A CAT DISPLAYS IN THE SHELTER AND NOT OUTSIDE THE SHELTER. ASPEN IS YOUNG AND DESERVES A CHANCE TO LIVE BUT HE WON’T GET THAT UNLESS YOU CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO PULL HIM TO SAFETY. HE ONY HAS UNTIL 12 NOON.
