ATKA – A1084608
Safe - 8-24-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
**SAFE 08/24/16** “Reaction to touch: Atka stands on her hind legs and head-butts vigorously. She is very affectionate throughout the interaction, continuously soliciting attention with her tail quivering.” ATKA is a LACTATING MAMA CAT without her kittens, and she’s still incredibly friendly according to her notes from the ACC—what a star! She earned a flawless BEGINNER rating, the best the ACC give out, but the one thing this 3-year-old was unable to procure for herself was a home. Look at those searching, intelligent eyes–this cat is a true character who should bring many years of love and happiness to the person who saves her life. Please make sure someone gets to enjoy that epic fairy tale development by advocating relentlessly on behalf of ATKA tonight!
