This just...ARRRRRGH!!! I've been to Newport. Dave lived there for 15 years. It's like Carmel, all fancy houses and rich people, which makes this all the more disgusting.
And it's Abyssinians. Any other type of cat would be bad enough, but Abys? I just imagine 48 Angels.
"I thought you would be interested to know that the Potter League for Animals removed 48 Abyssinians from a cat breeder in Newport, Chickwick Abyssinians, from her house. They also removed a corn snake, one dog, a turtle and two other household cats. She now has no animals. This situation was discovered because there was a fire in her home and when the fire department came they discovered such filth that all these cats were living in. I I looked at her website and it is a pretty nice website, you would NEVER think that she had terribly sick cats and kittens. The Potter League has most of them presently, they have other rescue groups coming in and believe it or not only one had to be put to sleep because its eye was not in the head and one did die at The Potter League. According to one woman from Potter's she is a greedy woman and only cares about selling her kittens. She lives on one of the most beautiful locations in Newport, you would never think this woman would live in these conditions."
If you're interested in helping to rescue one or more of these Abys, please contact the Potter League for Animals (Newport, RI), 87 Oliphant Lane, Middletown RI 02842
Tell all your friends. Especially if they've ever wanted an Abyssinian.
