MAYBE YOU FORGOT HIM??? YOU SENT THE SmART TEAM IN AND DID A BIG PRESS RELEASE ON JAN 19. HE'S STILL THERE WITH THE E-COLLAR ON HIS NECK!
A1182494 is the cat Brenda Barnette used in her press release of January 19, 2001, describing how LAAS "rescued" a cat from under some Beverly Hills pool furniture and then impounded the "rescued" cat on January 16, 2011. Brenda Barnette's press release said the cat would be available for adoption on January 20, 2011. The press release called the cat "sweet" and said nothing else about the cat to make someone want to save the cat.
Today, March 11, 2011, this cat is still impounded at LAAS, seven weeks later!!!!
Scroll down for the New Hope Alert list for cats, as of this morning, March 11, 2011. Search for the cat's impound number (A1182492) and you will see him listed, with the same awful photo Brenda Barnette never cared enough to improve. The cat Brenda Barnette "rescued" has now been on the New Hope Alert list for over two weeks, meaning he is at highest risk of euthanasia. Still, Brenda Barnette does nothing special to help this special cat she used for her own purposes. Seven weeks later.
Brenda Barnette was told that the cat's photo is awful (wearing a cone, looking terrified) and will hurt his chances of being adopted. She did nothing. The same awful photo is still on the website, seven weeks later.
Miss BB, why didn't you do any PR to help promote and save the cat you used in your press release for your own purposes to make herself look good, seven weeks? I heard from a volunteer that someone donated the adoption fees so the cat can be adopted for free. Don't you care, Brenda, or are you just not creative enough to save one cat?
Brenda Barnette can't even get this one cat saved. No wonder cat adoptions are down so much and cat (and dog) euthanasia is up. It's not even kitten season yet!!
Nice "rescue," Brenda. Nice skill getting the public to come adopt animals.
Will Brenda Barnette do one of those "transports" on this cat so he can be disposed of out of the public's eye? Or maybe one of her breeder friends can give her a training film on how to do adoptions. OR maybe you are too damn busy screwing up the LAAS website to care about this cat or any others.
