MITTENS – A1084564
Safe - 8-15-2016 Manhattan
**SAFE 08/15/16** THERE ONCE WAS A KITTEN. HER NAME IS MITTENS. AND HER STORY IS SO SORTED, THIS IS HOW IT IS WRITTEN! A rollercoaster ride would be best to describe what this 4 MONTH old, and SPAYED girl has been on. She was found at two weeks, her Finder kept her for two weeks, then handed her over to the family that DUMPED her because of allergies…and they only had her for three months! Enough math for ya? Even MITTENS can understand all those numbers add up to a baby who’s been handed off from idiot to idiot to the IDIOTS at the ACC who want to see her dead! MITTENS IS BEGINNER RATED and just needs a FOSTER OR ADOPTER to step in and save her. Don’t let her life end like this… stand up for her today!
