OREO – A1034187
*** SAFE 05/09/15 *** WHO DOESN’T LIKE AN OREO??….OREO’s volunteer note is QUITE a different story than the tale her former owner tells……A staff member writes: Oreo is a sweet, chubby nugget. For about 20 seconds she’ll be wary of you approaching her, but let her sniff your hand and it’ll be purr city! I ended up getting into a lengthy conversation while meeting this girl and the entire time she wiggled her way around to getting every itchy part of her scratched. When I got distracted and stopped petting her, she grabbed my hand (no claws, don’t worry) and pushed her cheek against it. I almost instantly melted. This girl may not be the most active, but if you want a companion for attention and love, look no further than this gorgeous gal. LOOKS LIKE OREO’S OWNER WAS TELLING A BIG FIB!! PLEASE OFFER TO ADOPT THIS LOVELY COOKIE WHO CERTAINLY DESERVES A BETTER HOME THAN SHE’S HAD!!
