KRAFT – 23538
Safe - 4-8-2018 Manhattan
SAFE 4/8/18 WATCH VIDEO OF KRAFT & ANNIE! Two friendly senior sisters – Kraft & Annie – are hoping to find their forever family, together @MACC – A volunteer writes: Gentle sweetness comes in all sizes and colors and with Kraft, it comes in a black and white tuxedo girl! You can get lost in her big beautiful kind eyes, and you won’t ever want to look away. She was sound asleep when I stopped by to say hi. I woke her out of her quiet slumber to let her know, I was there to deliver love and snuggles. After just a few coaxing words and a couple of cat treats, she was up and snuggled on up to me, resting her head against me in a grateful “thank you for the pets” way. Be still my heart! I spent quite a while with this sweetheart smothering her with pets and combing her lush fluffy coat.
Got some extra TLC to give? Kraft will surely take it. Meet the gang: Aged and mellowed out like an expensive Merlot, these delicious seniors are in the market for new homes. They don’t care if you rent or own, so long as you’re paying the bills and keep the treats a-coming! If you like chilled out cats who know what the best things in life are (naps and tuna!) then look no further! Of the cats below, Kraft and Annie came from the same house, as did Sunny Day, Taylor, and Lucky Lady.
