GILES – A1089109
Safe - 10-8-2016 Brooklyn
***SAFE 10/08/16*** THIRD CHANCE FOR GILES…MAKE IT COUNT!! INDEPENDENT LADY NEEDS NEW HOME BUT THE ACC WANTS HER GONE FOR CATCHING THEIR GERMS!! Yes the ACC does nothing to make sure these cats are not exposed to all the germs in their shelter – and when a cat does get sick, they just kill them. Not something you would expect from a place that uses the word CARE in their name. But poor GILES whose owner dumped for allergies, became a victim of the germ-ridden shelter and now she is going to pay the price of death! GILES lived with a dog and child – she got along with the dog and avoided the child. Her ex owner stated that she isn’t fond of being picked up – not anything new or surprising for those who know cat behavior. GILES is just a lady who knows what she wants, and if you give her your heart – she will be your new best friend. GILES was AVERAGE rated and was leaning into petting and loved back scratches. She was friendly and would be a super companion kitty. PLEASE DON’T LET THE ACC END THE LIFE OF THIS 4 YEAR YOUNG KITTY! CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO PULL HER TO SAFETY!!

A volunteer writes: It’s hard to resist Giles’ huge, golden eyes, beckoning you to be her fur-ever pal. Giles was apparently a little wary when she first came in, but now her true friendly colors are shining through. I noticed Giles was meowing for attention, and when I came over to pet her, she rewarded my attention with plenty of enthusiastic head-butts.
