SEEN – A1037885
***SAFE 06/02/15*** BEGINNER-RATED OLDER GINGER BOY IS FIV+ AND NEEDS A SPECIAL NEEDS RESCUE ANGEL – PLEASE GRANT SEEN A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Adorable, affectionate 8-year-old ginger boy SEEN, dumped into the kill-happy ACC as a 10-pound NEUTERED “STRAY”, BEGS FOR LOVE and AFFECTION! Seen even earned a rare but perfect BEGINNER behavior rating for the endearing way he BEGGED FOR LOVE AND AFFECTION! But this stunning “GOLDEN OLDIE” tested positive for FIV. Please know these facts: FIV+ cats can have, and DESERVE to have, a long and healthy life. They need careful attention to their general health and diet, but this is no more than ANY cat should receive. A properly-cared-for FIV+ cat need not have a shortened life expectancy. With good care, good nutrition, security, and prevention of stressful circumstances, they seem to recover from most secondary infections just like non-FIV cats. But the heartless ACC has written Seen off as NOT WORTH SAVING. Please be his second chance! Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt FIV+ older ginger lovebug SEEN! If you can’t save SEEN yourself, please SHARE his sad story and PLEDGE for his rescue!
