PRETTY – A1117213
Safe - 7-22-2017 Manhattan
*** SAFE 07/22/17 *** A volunteer writes: Pretty is very pretty, with enormous emerald eyes and soft gray fur, as you can see from her photo. But Pretty is many other things: calm, sweet, easygoing, and a lover of pettings by the humans who like to visit her. But Pretty is something else too: sad. You see, this lovely lady (who scored an A on her behavior exam) appears to have been a beloved house cat, but now she no longer has a family to call her own. And while she’s been a wonderful guest in the cat adoption room, she’s unsure of what her future holds, and when her new pet parents will come bring her to the forever home she deserves. While volunteers try to cheer her up, can you help Pretty find the family we know is out there for her?
NEW PHOTO! PRETTY was owner surrendered because owner states she is urinating on furniture and sheds too much; previously adopted from ASPCA. PRETTY may have a medical issue and should have been to a vet not taken to the shelter. Please help PRETTY by welcoming her into your home.
