KIWI – A1038939
***SAFE 06/13/15***PURRFECTLY HEALTHY TABBY WILL DUE DUE TO FEAR—SAVE KIWI! Poor Kiwi! She was brought in by police after being found inside someone’s home. The officers said this year old tabby was scared but not at all aggressive. Even during intake, Kiwi behaved like a purrfect gentleman—allowing handling and petting. Naturally, after a couple of days at the shelter, this terrific tabby became even more terrified. Cats of all ages have found their composure crumbling as they’ve been processed into the ACC, and a lot of those cats have turned out to be just fine when they have had some time to decompress in a new home. There’s nothing about Kiwi that can’t be fixed with some guidance and TLC, and there’s absolutely none of that where he is tonight. All that waits for Kiwi at the shelter is a needle and a black plastic freezer bag. Make sure he never, ever knows what they have planned for him, by saving Kiwi tonight.

I came in the shelter as a STRAY on 06/05/2015 from NY 11209, owner surrender reason stated was STRAY.
