***SAFE 08/30/16***Ellie is a 4 year old grey and white tabby surrendered by her former owner because of the personal problem epidemic excuse. It’s unbelievable how many people can give away a pet that at one time, meant so much to them. This poor cat was a great companion per her owner notes. She was a little shy at first but would warm up to strangers, play with her favorite toys and loved to be petted. Now that is all gone for her. She sits in a metal cage hearing the meows and barks of cats and dogs that she doesn’t know, wondering what she did wrong. During her assessment, she was not fond of being picked up and became very stiff. She is rated for an experienced home. Please apply to adopt or foster little Ellie tonight and give her the home that she deserves!
