KC – A1063720
Gone - 2-4-2016 Brooklyn
** GONE 02/04/16 *** KC IS A TWO YEAR OLD LADY WHO CAME TO THE ACC WITH TWO HOUSEMATES…One of them,BERNIE, was previously listed and is now SAFE!! Hoping we can do the same for KC tonight! KC is not yet spayed and she is a little fearful. Her owner stated that she did not get along with the the two cats she lived with and might be happy being the solo queen of the household. She has lived with children and allowed them to pet her but she was not actively involved with them. KC who is already fearful is having a hard time at the ACC, hence the NEW HOPE rating….IF YOU WOULD LIKE A COMPANION THAT’S A LITTLE MORE ON THE INDEPENDENT SIDE, PLEASE CONSIDER KC TONIGHT….You will need to contact a NEW HOPE rescue. If you need assistance, you can contact the HELP DESK at [email protected] and we can guide you to rescues…..

Her ears bend flat against her head and she starts to growl loudly. Reaction to cage door opening: KC becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: KC does not allow touch; she hisses and swats at the assessor’s hand and backs away. The interaction has stopped to prevent further stress.
