JINX – A1058667
Urgent 11-28-2015 Manhattan
**GONE 11/28/15** NEW HOPE rescue needed for a NEW BABY surrender! That’s right, darling JINX used to be her family’s baby, living with those folks since she was a kitten. Now there’s a new kiddo in the home so despite the fact that she got along GREAT with the adults and older children, someone decided it was just WAY too much work to keep a smart, loving, independent cat around for one more instant. JINX is a bit freaked out by how quickly and completely her life has gone to crap, and as such, she has earned a NEW HOPE rating from the shelter. She is less than 2 years old and should decompress if given the chance—this girl needs a FOSTER or ADOPTER to work with a NEW HOPE rescue and save her life, tonight!
