***SAFE 04/07/2016*** NEW HOPE ANGELS NEEDED TONIGHT! Anyone who wants to get through the rest of their evening without being totally pissed off, should probably skip reading GRICI’s biography. That way, they can pretend not to know this innocent cat was born into the same human family that passed her around like a hookah, before she finally was so stressed that she scratched someone. Also, anyone who skips her bio doesn’t have to read about the fight with another cat, the open window, how they caught her again, etc. GRICI has been on a DOH hold during her time at the shelter, which means she has been ignored even more than cats usually are, if you can imagine that. This confused girl needs some stability in her life. Also, she has NEVER been to a vet, and it would be swell if the first time she saw a member of that noble profession, they weren’t about to kill her. Grici needs a foster/adopter to work quickly with a NEW HOPE RESCUE in order to save her life, tonight!
