A Twitter message and a compassionate vet save a cat's life.
Dr. Michelle M. Brownstein, a vet in Rochester, New York, saw a desperate Twitter message about a black and white blind cat named Nick who was to be euthanized the next day.
The message included a picture of 12-year-old Nick on death row in a New York City shelter and it melted Brownstein's heart.
"There was something about his face, his posture," Brownstein told Democrat and Chronicle. "It just got to me. The cat had absolutely no hope."And so Brownstein posted on the Pets on Death Row Facebook page:
I will take Nick.. I own Henrietta Animal Hospital in Rochester, NY. www.henriettahosp.com just need someone to bring him up here.
