*SAFE* 05/16/15- A staff member writes: “This shy kitty is so sweet; she’ll give you a toothache! Candy was surrendered by an owner who had to move on without her, and all she needs is another chance at love. It only takes a little patience to get her snuggling closer to you. Try to stop petting her, and she’ll find her way under your arm again, purring in self-satisfaction. Sweetheart Candy comes with her own unique flavor, so you’ll have to meet her to know if she’s the one for you!”
