MISSY – A0660777
SAFE ***FORMERLY FRIENDLY OLDER GIRL, ORIGINALLY ADOPTED FROM ACC & DUMPED BACK THERE DUE TO “PERSONAL PROBLEMS”, WILL NOW DIE DUE TO HER FEAR – PLEASE GRANT MISSY A DEATH ROW PARDON!!!*** Pretty princess MISSY, an older gray tuxie girl, wound up once again at the kill-happy ACC with a heartbreaking back story: “Missy is a 9-year-old spayed cat who has no prior injuries or medical problems. She was originally gotten from ACC & has been with the same owner. She was surrendered to the shelter due to owner losing housing & had to relocate to a place that does not allow animals. She has lived with other cats & was relaxed & affectionate & very playful but would play rough. She lived with a dog & was relaxed & respectful. She will play with string & balls & does scratch on furniture but was never given a scratching post to use. At home she stays in a favorite spot will play exuberantly. She would sleep with owner in their bed or on a window sill.” PERFECT, right? But the scary ACC has poor Missy terrified, so when she HISSED & SWATTED at their frightening fake hand, they wrote her off as a New Hope Only behavior problem, to be “CURED” with a lethal injection at noon tomorrow. Please step up for this dear TWICE-BETRAYED girl! Missy will revert back to her usual sweet ways as soon as she escapes the ACC hellhole. Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt betrayed older beauty MISSY from the approved New Hope rescue groups! If you can’t save MISSY yourself, please SHARE her sad story & PLEDGE for her rescue!
