*** SAFE 11/06/15 ***WHAT A BEAUTY! PUMPKIN PIE is a sweet 3 year old orange tabby. Orange tabbies are usually male, so this female is a rare one! PUMPKIN PIE lived with the same family ever since she was a kitten, and was dropped off at the shelter because the owners complained that they didn’t have the time to care for her. How sad, that this little sweetie no longer has a home or a family to love, and her life is on the line! If she’s not rescued, she’ll be put to death TOMORROW! PUMPKIN PIE was sometimes going outside the litter box at her home, but instead of taking her to the vet to see what the problem was, they decided to give her a possible death sentence at the shelter instead! Because PUMPKIN PIE is afraid at the shelter, she is in desperate need of help through NEW HOPE RESCUE! If you want to save this sweet scared ginger-girl’s life, please contact New Hope Rescue today!! She will be so thankful for your love and caring!!

Pumpkin Pie does not get along well with children. She has not been around other cats or dogs. She has been kept mostly indoors. She is described as having a medium activity level and according to her owner is most active at night. Pumpkin Pie’s previous owner reports that she was eliminating outside the litterbox but we are unaware of what, if any, modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. Please note as well that Pumpkin Pie’s previous living situation may have contributed to the behavior seen. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a different home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litterbox should this behavior continue in a home environment. We also recommend that Pumpkin Pie be provided with numerous litterboxes throughout the house as she adjusts to her new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as she learns the space and successfully defecates in her main litterbox.
