MORGAN – A1056775
Urgent 12-21-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 12/21/15***MARVELOUS MORGAN AT SHELTER SINCE 11/4 NEEDS RESCUE ANGEL! A staff member writes, “Morgan immediately caught my attention with her piercing gaze while walking through the halls one day. With a storied past, Morgan needs things to be taken slow in life, but once she gets used to her surroundings she wants to impress everyone around her. Her previous owner said she has never had an accident outside the litterbox, and loves being picked up and brushed. Morgan is a playful and confident cat but would do best in a home with experienced cat parents. She could also go to a home with kids as long as the kids were respectful of her boundaries. Morgan is an incredibly loyal cat too, she is just looking for someone who has room in their heart for an older cat. Come meet Morgan at ACC today and discover how great it is to have an older cat in your life!” This spayed beautiful girl was sadly surrendered due to her former owner’s “personal problems.” This great girl (who is either 15 as stated in intake notes or 6 as stated in recent notes) has come down with a nasty case of the shelter cooties after coming in purrfectly healthy. She has lost a bit of weight and is lethargic but what she really needs is lots of TLC and some meds. Morgan is such a sweetheart and would be a low maintenance, great companion to just about anyone. Can you open up your heart and home to this terrific tabby for the holiday and furever? Please reserve Morgan online or let a rescue know if you can help. Transportation is available by contacting one of our New Hope partners. Email email@example.com for assistance. Marvelous Morgan only has tonight. We are her only hope. Don’t let this terrific tabby down!!!!
