What rare and exotic animal is this? It's neither rare nor exotic. It's just an abandoned kitten temporarily housed in the Ewing Township (a suburb of Trenton) Animal Shelter, while it awaits its fate, adoption or perhaps euthanasia. Employees at the shelter have charged that a number of cats were euthanised at the shelter without proper protocol being followed.

While the writer and I were there, Gayle Hobson & her daughter Sara Hobson came along. They got help from shelter employee Amy Mostrangeli, right, in wheeling out 14 cats which they are "fostering" (keeping until homes can be found).
