**SAFE 06/23/16** COUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN CAT!! MAXI’S owner surrendered her because she scratched her leather couch instead of her scratching post. Apparently nothing remedial was done to help train MAXI. It was much easier to pack her up and dump her at the ACC…..MAXI lived with a Bichon Frise dog that she would play with and she interacted with the owner’s young grandchildren. MAXI is a mellow girl and only has an EXPERIENCE rating because she is overwhelmed by the noise and distractions of the shelter. PLEASE HELP THIS LOVELY CAT GET TO A GOOD HOME TONIGHT!! Apply to FOSTER or ADOPT!! Email [email protected] if you need help. MAXI IS WORTH SO MUCH MORE THAN FURNITURE!!
