Shelter Staff made the following comments about this animal:
A Poem For Miss October by Her Foster:
Miss October can not be summed up
by just one little phrase.
She is so very special
in so many different ways.
She can get fussy from time to time.
But mostly she is just a cool, relaxed feline.
Your best friend she’ll be if you let her.
All your secrets. She’ll keep them forever.
Sometimes she’s sweet, and sometimes she’s sour.
That is just part of the mystery, that is “Miss October”.
So many walking contradictions she is.
I could literally go on and on.
I could produce you a list.
The personality of a person,
but the conviction of a dog.
Yet she is in fact a cat,
super cuddly and soft.
Intelligent and calculated she is.
Please don’t underestimate her feet.
So fluffy and soft.
She may be timid but it’s a fact,
She’s super quick, and tough.
One thing more about Miss October
I would like you all to know.
Her past might’ve been dark,
but in your hands her future’s bright.
And in your heart, Love for her will grow.
She’ll be a great addition to a good family,
in a safe and loving home.
But that you’ll have to adopt her, take her home,
and give her a second chance to know.
To : Miss October
