TIGERESS – A1040004
***SAFE 06/25/15*** “FRIENDLY” MAINE COON CALICO SENIOR CHARMER, DUMPED FOR “PERSONAL PROBLEMS”, HAS A GREAT BEHAVIOR RATING BUT THE ACC WILL KILL HER ANYWAY – PLEASE GRANT TIGERESS A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Exquisite 12-year-old Maine Coon calico beauty TIGERESS was sadly surrendered to the kill-happy ACC due to the PERSONAL problems of her old owner, who could no longer care for Tigeress. At home, this gorgeous elder-cat was PURRFECT: “Tigeress lived with three adults and 1 rabbit. Tigeress has been exposed to children and is tolerant. If she does not want to engage she will find her own space away from them. Tigeress does not engage dogs. She is described as being very affectionate with the rabbit she lived with who is 2 years old. Tigeress enjoys being brushed and being picked up. Tigeress has a feather toy and ball toys. She likes to play swat and chase. When the family is home she likes to be where they are.” Did I mention that Tigeress is ALREADY SPAYED and has fastidious litter box and scratching post manners? Maine Coons are the clowns of the cat world – gentle, goofy lovebugs, so it’s no wonder Tigeress earned a very good EXPERIENCE behavioral rating. But the ACC will MURDER this marvelous senior at noon tomorrow! Please start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt terrific senior Maine Coon girl TIGERESS! If you can’t save TIGERESS yourself, please SHARE her sad story and PLEDGE for her rescue!
