HOPS – A1043162
***GONE 07/12/15*** FRIENDLY, PURRING YOUNG GIRL IS PERFECTLY HEALTHY, BUT WILL NOW DIE DUE TO HER FEAR – PLEASE GRANT HOPS A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Gorgeous 4-year-old white and brown tabby girl HOPS was tossed into the kill-happy ACC. Hops was FRIENDLY during intake: “During intake allowed all handling without aggression. When touched had stiff body at first but then relaxed, would press against hand, and purr.” But this is ONE SMART KITTY, who quickly realized that the ACC means her mortal harm! She WANTS TO BE LOVED, but she’s SCARED, so her FEAR took over during her behavior test, so she avoided contact and HISSED. Can you BLAME her? You’d do exactly the same, if you were in HER paws! Now the ACC has PUNISHED poor Hops with New Hope Only and fast-tracked this excellent young cat to the noon kill list for tomorrow, despite the fact that HOPS is PERFECTLY HEALTHY! Please don’t let them murder this pretty princess. Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt betrayed, scared girl HOPS from the approved New Hope rescue groups! If you can’t save HOPS yourself, please SHARE her sad story and PLEDGE for her rescue!
