GRACE – A1019157
***GONE 08/10/15***SECOND CHANCE–MAKE IT COUNT! AMAZING GRACE PLAYFUL YOUNG KITTY NEEDS RESCUE MIRACLE Grace (yes, supposedly a boy—although this cute kitty is referred as both a “he” and “she” several times) is an adorable 14 month old precious pet who is being returned due to “play aggression” but when you read the notes, he sounds like a purrfect pet. The owner says Grace is healthy, sweet, likes to cuddle and loves people. She has great manners and lived with another cat—who is apparently afraid of her. Not sure what was done to help modify behavior but this faithful feline friend is a betrayed housepet who is not too happy about being dumped back at the shelter. Who can blame him? What makes it more challenging is that although Grace is purrfectly healthy and obviously a cat who loves people, he is NH rated. So please contact a rescue if you can foster or adopt this poor misunderstood angel. Won’t you please make the call for amazing Grace and give him the rescue miracle he desperately needs?
