SAFE 3/10/18 NAKIA is a beautiful calico kitty who was brought in after owner moved away and left cat behind. She is 3 yrs old and already spayed and would love a new home.
Hello, my name is Nakia. My animal id is #21507. I am a desexed female white cat at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 3 years 6 months 1 weeks old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 23-Feb-2018.

Nakia is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with an Upper Respiratory Infection, which is contagious to other cats. Behaviorally, we have no concerns for Nakia, whom we believe would be suitable even to beginner cat homes.
