SALEM – A1038681
***SAFE 06/15/15*** “VERY FRIENDLY” PURRING, KNEADING CROSS-EYED KITTEN CUTIE, DUMPED FOR ALLERGIES, WILL DIE BECAUSE HE SNEEZED – PLEASE GRANT SALEM A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Charming cross-eyed lovebug SALEM, a handsome brown tabby and white kitten just 14 months of age, finds himself slung into the kill-happy ACC due to ALLERGIES. At home, Salem got along great with the other cat and loves to play, especially in the morning, and he’s ALREADY NEUTERED! What’s not to love? Salem even PURRED and KNEADED during intake – no WONDER he rocked a near-perfect AVERAGE behavior rating! But this adorable kitten will DIE at noon tomorrow, an INNOCENT VICTIM of the notorious ACC kitty cold and a badly broken shelter system. Please don’t let them silence Salem’s purrs forever! Just a kitten, he has YEARS of love left to share with YOU. Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt charming cross-eyed SALEM! If you can’t save SALEM yourself, please SHARE his sad story and PLEDGE for his rescue!
