DAKOTA – A1046547
***GONE 08/22/15*** Well, just a mere handful of days to realize your new cat isn’t adjusting to life with the resident cat! That is the CRUEL situation that 1 year old DAKOTA has found herself in. Just a few days! How can a pet get used to anything in such a short period of time? The SPAYED girls former owner “claims” that DAKOTA only tolerated minimal petting and struggled when picked up. Yet BACK AT THE ACC, she appreciated petting on her head and body and head- butted the assessor’s hand. This girl earned an AVERAGE rating! So who’s lying here? PLEASE find a foster/adopter and save DAKOTA , AGAIN. This time, lets make it her last time at the ACC!
