***SAFE 07/22/15*** FIVE MONTH OLD KITTEN FIESTY IS LOVING AND SWEET BUT AFRAID OF CHILDREN! FIESTY should be home, playing with her cat dancer or lounging on the bed. It’s said she is great with other cats, but is afraid of children. She will hiss if handled improperly, or put into a carrier, as per her previous owner who gave her up due to ‘personal problems’. FIESTY’s last trip in a carrier was to ACC, so is it any wonder she’s afraid? This is a pretty little kitten on a crowded list. Her life is in grave danger and she could be killed without someone offering to foster her or adopt her. FIESTY is JUST A BABY! Please don’t let her life be snuffed out because someone couldn’t realize she was a forever cat-make her your forever cat, and you’ll find she’s not so feisty after all!
