**GONE 09/13/15** EXPERIENCE-rated FESTINE is a frightened young lady who just wants to go home. Who can blame her? She misses following her loved humans around the house, she misses her favorite sunny windowsill, and she simply can’t understand why her life has taken such a drastic turn. Her former owner decided life was too complicated to include FESTINE, whereas FESTINE cannot imagine life without her loved former family. This pretty lady needs a NEW foster or adoptive family to step up for her tonight, or she will be killed as the clock strikes noon tomorrow. Please advocate vigorously for FESTINE, tonight!
