ARMANI – A0669722
**GONE 04/30/15** “The owner says her favorite thing about Armani is that she catches mice and she is a good cat.” A New Hope partner is needed for Armani, tonight! This super-nice cat has lived with a dog, has lived with young kids, and is generally just a mellow, uncomplicated lovebug. She doesn’t like the loud noises and rude atmosphere of the shelter, which has played out in the form of a New Hope rating. Armani is already spayed and ready to go to her new home, provided that a New Hope partner saves her life, tonight.
