***SAFE 05/15/15*** GORGEOUS PERFECTLY HEALTHY KITTEN HAS A LOVING VOLUNTEER PLEA AND A GREAT BEHAVIOR RATING, BUT THE ACC WILL KILL HER ANYWAY – PLEASE GRANT CUQUITA A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Adorable 9-month-old kitten CUQUITA, a stunning and RARE ginger and white girl, was dumped into the kill-happy ACC due to “TOO MANY PETS”. This lovely kitten quickly caught the eye of an ACC volunteer, who lovingly writes: “Cuquita is a gorgeous cat who needs a little time to warm up to you. She needs someone to love her and have the patience to watch her grow to be the best kitty she can be! Give this little girl a chance to grow into your own best friend forever and come pull her at MACC today!” Cuquita earned a very good EXPNOCHILD behavior rating, but now the heartless ACC will KILL her tomorrow at noon, despite the fact that this excellent kitten is PERFECTLY HEALTHY! Please start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt darling kitten CUQUITA! If you can’t save CUQUITA yourself, please SHARE her sad story and PLEDGE for her rescue!

Cuquita does not become aggressive towards strangers or children. Cuquita has lived with her sibling. Cuquita & her brother play gently & are affectionate with each other.

Reaction to assessor: Cuquita looks tense in her cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Cuquita remains crouched down on her cage bedding, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Cuquita seems unsure and hesitant with the touch. She then began to lean away from the assessor’s hand and shows no interest. Placement determination: Experience / no child Cuquita tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
