***SAFE 04/13/2016*** “HER FAVORITE ACTIVITIES ARE TO SLEEP AND EAT FOOD”…..MING is a cat after my own heart!! Eight year old MING also lived with kids from 4-13 and a miniature poodle who she was OK with as long they respected each other’s boundaries…..MING’s owner is sick and MING needs a good look at by a competent vet also…..The ACC must have been bored that day because they cooked up a whole bunch of medical stuff that MING may or may not have…which is why we recommend a vet visit. MING is already SPAYED and has a super AVERAGE rating. BUT WHAT SHE NEEDS IS A NEW HOME….IMAGINE HER HORROR AT BEING RETURNED HERE….Speak up for MING and apply to FOSTER or ADOPT NOW!! If you need assistance, email us at [email protected]
