***SAFE 08/26/17*** LEANDER WAS MELLOW AND SWEET WITH HER FINDER BUT NOW IN THE SHELTER SHE IS NOT HAPPY AND MUST HAVE RESCUE IMMEDIATELY! LEANDER was found by someone who kept her for 2 days. She got along with his 2 dogs and another cat. Then after bringing this 1 year old kitten to the shelter Leander has not been herself and has not wanted anyone touching her. Thus she is on tonight’s list. IS SOMEONE OUT THERE ABLE TO GIVE THIS PRETTY CALICO KITTEN A HOME? MUST RESERVE HER THROUGH A NEW HOPE RESCUE BY NOON!
