EMMA – A1048186
***GONE 08/22/15***LOVELY EMMA PLAYFUL BETRAYED HOUSEPET NEEDS YOU! Talk about irony. Three year old Emma’s family gave her up because they wanted her to have a BETTER home…Really? Here is something you would never do to your own cat: Give your pet a good home for a couple of years; randomly shove her out on her own as if you never cared, making sure she got good and lost in the big wide world; arrange for your pet to enter cat hell, and be frisked by poking, prodding strangers almost immediately; expect your cat to show a happy, friendly demeanor. But that’s exactly what life has been like for Emma since she got lost, since she entered the ACC system on 8/17 since her world fell apart. Emma came into the shelter purrfectly healthy. In fact, she is still purrectly healthy. But since she is naturally petrified at the shelter and who can blame her since she has been a pampered housepet her entire life—so she is slated to become another sad ACC stat when tomorrow afternoon rolls around. Her NH rating might put some folks off and ensure that this poor cat dies when the euth tech makes rounds tomorrow afternoon. Please don’t let that happen. Cats should not die because they are lost, and scared, and honest about their emotions. Advocate for Emma tonight. Let a rescue know if you can help. Save a life. Make a difference.
