***SAFE 08/08/15*** CHOO CHOO was adopted from ACC-and returned along with her adopted friend CHINA, but returned when the former owner decided to move and not make arrangements for the cats, except to bring them to ACC where the now 4 year old CHOO CHOO sits on death row, though she’s committed no crime-and has, in fact, come in with what looks to be a poorly healed fracture to her leg! What was done to this cat? Why wouldn’t you bring your cat to the vet? WHO THE HELL DOES ACC ADOPT CATS TO? If this makes you angry-do something about it. Get CHOO CHOO-who’s name was ‘TINKERBELL’ but ACC liked CHOO CHOO better-reach out and rescue this incredibly cat who loves people, enjoyed being with children, liked to cuddle but who’s now hissing and frightened in a steel cage with not a friend in sight. How did her leg get hurt? We may never know-but she deserves better than being ‘put to sleep’ don’t you think? She’s noted to be part Siamese and has a sweet way about her when not scared to death-save CHOO CHOO NOW!
