***SAFE 08/30/16***NANKITA is a pretty 7 year old female white and gray kitty who was bred in the home brought to the shelter because a new child became allergic. She is friendly, affectionate, playful and quiet. This poor girl has been uprooted from the only home she’s ever known, the family she loved, and her cat sister! If no one rescues this sweet girl, she will be killed at the shelter tomorrow. Poor NANKITA is scared at the shelter, so she’s not her usual CUDDLY, AWESOME SELF! Please give NANKITA a home before it’s too late! This little beauty would make an amazing BEST FURRY FRIEND!!!
