Culture on the Cheap
Meet Tango And Honey
These lovely ladies have been given a brief reprieve from the Center of Animal Care and Control’s euthanasia list in the hopes someone will give them new homes. Follow are brief bios for these two winsome cats from Eva, A fellow Greenpointer:
Tango is two years old and weighs nine pounds. She’s a very friendly, calm, cool and collected young girl. She loves to be petted. She is bright and very in tune with any human who lavishes attention upon her—which were in fact, quite a few! She had us lining up! She has been spayed by Animal Care and Control and can go home with you today.
Less is known about Honey. This sweet-faced two year old hails from the Bronx. Her owner was evicted so she ended up at the C.C.A.C. Honey currently has a mild case of the sniffles (who hasn’t given the weather of late), but she is being treated with medication and is expected to be just fine.
If anyone is interested in giving either of these felines fallen on hard times a foster or forever home they should contact Eva via email at evaprokop (at) earthlink (dot) net A.S.A.P.
Even if you cannot take Tango and Honey in, please spread the word.
I believe the character of a society should be judged not by its so-called accomplishments. Greatness be it monetarily, technologically or intellectually is not what defines a people. Rather, it is how they (or in this case, we) treat those who are unable to fend for themselves, be they two-legged or otherwise.
These two lovely animals did nothing whatsoever to deserve the fate that befell them, e.g.; ending up on a euthanasia list at an animal shelter. It was simply a matter of bad luck. They deserve better. And we should do our best to give them the quality of life they deserve.
