*** SAFE 12/08/17 *** Meet Diva! This 15 year old cat has been through a lot, so let’s help her find the family that she deserve @MACC – A volunteer writes: Grey Goddess. Diva is a lovely lady. A beautiful shade of grey with an artful splotch of white on her chest. Her eyes are a deep emerald green. When I approached Diva’s kennel, I was greeted with a deep, deep meow. (There must be a Siamese in her genes.) I opened the door and was given the royal sniff down. Was she curious! I knew I passed inspection, when she rewarded me with a kitty kiss on my nose. Many head butts later, I was hooked. You will be too. Won’t you open your heart and your home to this sweet girl?
