CANDY – A1056184
Urgent 11-13-2015 Staten Island Rescue: Magnificat Cat Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://magnificatrescue.org/
**SAFE 11/13/15** CURIOUS CANDY WOULD REALLY LIKE PEOPLE TO CHILL….After 11 years, she finds herself abandoned by her owners because she was biting them and they were getting too old to take care of her…..WHAT?? No vet visit to see if an 11 year old cat might be ill or in pain?? Nope….just straight to the ACC where they could leave her with strangers. Needless to say, this is not a course of action that will help CANDY. She already has a NEW HOPE rating…..CANDY NEEDS HELP! BUT IS SHE GOING TO GET IT TONIGHT?? If you can give CANDY some time, space and patience (and a visit with a competent vet), PLEASE contact a NEW HOPE rescue and offer to FOSTER OR ADOPT…Don’t let another life be wasted because no one cared…..

PERSONALITY Candy is described as assertive, talkative and independent. She is litter box trained and had a medium activity level.
