This sad case comes out of Rome, Georgia (USA) and is a story often heard by people who follow shelter cats on social media. This beautiful cat was surrendered because the family got a new puppy.
Her name is Gray and she’s a young female dilute calico. Gray is available for adoption for $35 at Public Animal Welfare Services in Rome, Georgia.
Please share her story, as being an owner-surrendered kitty, she may be killed for space at any time. Or she may catch the dreaded kitty cold. A lot of things could happen to this beauty if she isn’t adopted or rescued soon.
People, if you’re planning on getting a new puppy, please consider whether the resident cat will get along with it. This is the same type of “adopter” (and I use that word loosely) who will return the puppy to the shelter when it gets old or sick, or when the family gets bored and wants to experience a new puppy.
You can keep up with Gray on her Facebook thread.
I also think people who surrender the family cat under these circumstances should be put on some kind of list to prevent them from adopting from the shelter. Agreed?
