***SAFE 09/17/16*** 7 MONTH OLD HEAD BUTTING, PAW REACHING OUT KITTEN ON DEATH ROW!!! Seriously…who would bring this baby to ACC? But somoene found her on the street in Borough Park, Brooklyn, bopped her into a carrier and bought this sweet and friendly little girl to ACC! She’s incredibly friendly and is either abandoned or lost…because many people don’t know about looking for their lost cat at ACC! But tonight little MINKY who loved up on every staff member at ACC she met is in danger-it hasn’t saved her from the at risk list and since MINKY is a little black and white oreo girl she’s in terrible danger. Do you want to save this little girl’s life? Then please, reach out and offer to foster or adopt this purrfect litle girl. She needs you very much tonight!!!
