**SAFE 02/08/16** POOR PRECIOUS IS ONLY 2 YEARS OLD AND NOT SICK BUT DUE TO HER PURRSONALITY ISSUES, THEY PUNISHED HER WITH A NEW HOPE RATING AND WILL KILL HER AT NOON! PRECIOUS is a very particular lady and she was dumped at the shelter because her owner said he was sick and had personal problems. Poor PRECIOUS may have been suffering from these “problems” as she seems to have some behavior issues which would need to be addressed by an experienced cat purrson. PRECIOUS is very beautiful and it seems that she is confused and is just acting out due to her situation. She came to the front of the cage for treats when the assessor came by but then hissed in fear when the cage door opened up. She was punished with the New Hope rating because of her fear. PRECIOUS NEEDS SOMEONE WITH CAT WHISPERING SKILLS. SHE IS A BEAUTY QUEEN AND SHE NEEDS A PLACE TO CHILL OUT AND FEEL SAFE AGAIN. IF YOU ARE HER NEW “PURRSON” PLEASE HURRY AND CONTACT A RESCUE TO SAVE HER LIFE NOW!
