***GONE 09/08/16*** PRISSY NEEDS A HERO TONIGHT TO GIVE HER A CHANCE FOR A NEW HOME AND A HAPPY ENDING! PRISSY’s owner dumped her for allergies. This kitty lived in a home with 2 young children who would pull her tail and ears. Her owner did not keep a litterbox in the home but let her outside to do her business. PRISSY’s life now has been turned upside down and this 5 yr old kitty needs someone to give her a chance to have a furever home this time.
