JINGLES – A1050534
Urgent 9-16-2015 Brooklyn
**SAFE 09/16/15** Once again, a cat who has been given as a gift finds her way to the bloodthirsty shelter system, and tonight’s euth list, because she was supposedly not a perfect fit for a home that occasionally hosted young kiddos. JINGLES is said to be a ragdoll mix and she is just a baby herself, still learning what is expected of her. Her owner surrender notes show a kitten who might get overstimulated, who might not feel her best, who might have been stressed out wherever she lived before; it’s clear that she needs a change of pace. Jingles can be reserved on the ACC website tonight, or someone can work with a New Hope rescue to foster/adopt her, but either way, HER TIME IS UP AT THE ACC! Please advocate fiercely for Jingles, a pretty young lady who hasn’t found her place in the world, and who only has tonight in which to do it…..

Client has chosen to surrender Jingles while she is still young because she believes she is too anti social with the children. She also stated she believes that Jingles should be placed in a home where there are elderly people that would just let her be. SOCIALIZATION Jingles is described as very shy. She tends not to warm up to people at all. Client stated that she rarely seeks for attention. Ever so often she brushes her head against her owner.
