***SAFE 06/17/15*** SWEET SENIOR LOVEBUG, DUMPED FOR ALLERGIES, HAS A CHARMING VOLUNTEER PLEA AND A GREAT BEHAVIOR RATING, BUT WILL DIE BECAUSE SHE SNEEZED – PLEASE GRANT NANA A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Gorgeous gray and white 10-year-old senior lady NANA was sadly BETRAYED by her former owner, who dumped this sweet GOLDEN OLDIE into the high-kill ACC for ALLERGIES and a MOVE to new cat-free digs. Nana quickly caught the eye of an ACC staffer, who writes: “The favorite adult in most households, Nanas are known for being kind, loving, and wise. Our Nana is ten years young and currently looking for a new home to live out her golden years. Her previous owner described her as “independent yet playful,” which basically makes Nana the purrrrfect cat! She loves to hang out with her people, yet is also equally happy lounging happily in a sunny spot. She also lived with another cat!” At home, Nana had a “medium to high level of energy and was described as quiet, independent, confident, and playful.” Nana earned a very good EXPERIENCE behavior rating for the trusting way she LEANED into the assessor’s hand and allowed all petting. But this dear eldercat will DIE at noon tomorrow, an INNOCENT VICTIM of the ever-present ACC kitty cold and a badly broken shelter system. Please save Nana! Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt sweet senior NANA! If you can’t save NANA yourself, please SHARE her sad story and PLEDGE for her rescue!
