***SAFE 08/04/15*** PERFECTLY HEALTHY RARE BENGAL BOY, DUMPED FOR NEW BABY, WILL NOW DIE DUE TO HIS FEAR – PLEASE GRANT MAIKO A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! “Abandon all hope, ye who enter here” might as well be the label of the intake photo of MAIKO, a stunning 6-year-old rare BENGAL boy, who was dumped into the kill-happy ACC due to NEW BABY. At home, Maiko was PURRfect: “Maiko is neutered and his previous owners received him from craigslist when he was 1 year old and has had him for 5 years. The thing his owner liked most was that he acts like a dog. Maiko is litter box trained, and has been kept mostly indoors. He has a high activity level and can be described as playful, confident, assertive, talkative, and independent. Maiko enjoys having his coat brushed. He liked to play with balls and string. When home he likes to be in his favorite spot. When he plays he is exuberant.” But this darling, social boy is TERRIFIED in the scary shelter, so he acted DEFENSIVELY during his behavior test. The ACC PUNISHED this excellent cat with New Hope Only and fast-tracked poor Maiko to the noon kill list for tomorrow,despite the fact that he’s PERFECTLY HEALTHY! Please save the life of this stunning Bengal boy! Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt betrayed Bengal boy MAIKO from the approved New Hope rescue groups! If you can’t save MAIKO yourself, please SHARE his sad story and PLEDGE for his rescue!
