LATIFAH – A1059188
Urgent 12-4-2015 Brooklyn
***SAFE 12/04/15*** LATIFAH is a pretty female, brown tabby cat, around 2 years old. She was brought into the shelter in a trap with her litter of kittens. This new mom was afraid at first but after a while, she settled down. She’s hesitant but open to petting. This pretty young thing is on the euthanasia list for tomorrow. How sad for such a young sweetheart to lose her life, when she’d make such a fantastic bff (best furry friend!). She would be terrific in a home with experienced cat parents who know how to take it slow with this shy kitty, until she learns to trust again. She’s just waiting for her cat angel to come save her. She would be fur-ever grateful!! LATIFAH is a princess and a gentle sweetheart of a cat. All she needs is a chance to be your best gal!! Please RESCUE THIS GENTLE CUTIE TODAY!!!
