***SAFE 06/23/16*** MARVELOUS MITTENS HAS PURRFECT HOUSE MANNERS AND IS A SHY GIRL – BUT NOW THAT HER OWNER DUMPED HER FOR HAVING “NO TIME” TO CARE FOR HIS CAT – MITTENS IS AFRAID AND WILL DIE EVEN THOUGH SHE IS TOTALLY HEALTHY!! MITTENS is a 2 year old kitty whose ex-owner found as a stray and took in. This dilute tortie girl was on her best behavior, and got along with other cats in the home. Yet, for some reason, this person has decided they have no more time to take care of MITTENS. Now she is scared out of her wits in the shelter and backed away and hissed at the assessor. Wouldn’t you? Who wants a fake plastic hand stuck in their face! So MITTENS is New Hope rated and a prime candidate for being the first cat wheeled down to the euth room. BUT YOU CAN CHANGE ALL THAT NOW! MITTENS CAN LIVE AND ENJOY LIFE AS YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND IF YOU HURRY AND CONTACT A RESCUE GROUP TO PULL HER TO SAFETY. IF YOU NEED INFORMATION PLEASE EMAIL [email protected] NOW!
