Gorgeous one-year-old black and white kitten SHADOW was RESCUED, but then DUMPED into the kill-happy ACC due to Pet Conflict and a lingering kitty cold. This adorable,”AFFECTIONATE” kitten caught the eye of an ACC volunteer, who lovingly writes: “Shadow is a young dark and handsome boy that is ready to go to his new forever home. This boy’s previous adopter returned him because poor cutie Shadow was coming down with a kitty cold. Shadow is now ready to go to him new forever home where he can recover from his little kitty cold, and get back to the playful boy that he is. Pull Shadow today from MACC!!!” Sadly, poor Shadow will DIE at noon tomorrow, another INNOCENT VICTIM of the notorious ACC kitty cold and a badly broken shelter system. Shadow earned a near-perfect AVERAGE behavior rating for his HEADBUTTS, he’s ALREADY NEUTERED, & he’s GREAT WITH KIDS!
