MJ – A1052407
Urgent 9-26-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: Happy Homes Please honor your pledges: http://www.happyhomesinc.org/
***SAFE 09/26/15***MJ is a sleek white and tan cutie, with the color of newly fallen snow. What a cutie with big curious eyes! She is around 11 months, and was brought into the shelter because MJ was displaying fearful behavior. She may have a high-strung temperament, and when overstimulated, may hiss and growl. She’s basically scared, and not doing well in the shelter environment. All she needs is a home with owners who know how to let MJ have her space and she will come around on her own terms. She can be adopted through New Hope Rescue. She needs to be fostered until she’s ready to find her forever home. Please give this young kitty a chance to learn to trust again. Once she does, she will be your best furry friend forever!!!
