MARILYN – A1050594
Safe 10-28-2015 Manhattan
SAFE 10/28/15 A volunteer writes: Somehow Marilyn has been at the Care Center since early September. Luckily she’s a confident one and she has made herself right at home in her kitty condo. However, she knows that there’s more to life and she’s shown nothing but her best behavior as she waits to meet that special someone. I recently had the honor of visiting with Marilyn and found her lounging in her condo, belly up with her toy in her paw quietly watching all the visitors. She’s a great friendly cat and not one to pass up! Come meet this too-long term resident today.
