SICILY – A1075690
Safe - 6-17-2016 Brooklyn
***SAFE 06/17/16***AVERAGE RATED SENIOR SICILY HAS ONLY TIL NOON TOMORROW TO FIND A FOSTER OR ADOPTER!! She’s 10 years old but has MANY years left and would love to live them out with you! A volunteer writes – “SICILY is a older lady who is a little shy at first. I extended my hand and she slowly came to sniff my hand. She enjoyed the company and the attention. She is a nice girl who needs a new home, si come see if you can find it in your heart to give her one.” Another volunteer writes – “Imagine my surprise when I looked at Sicily’s kennel card and found that she is 10 years old! At first glance, I thought she was a tiny, one-time year old tuxie. She is such a slip of a thing; only 6 pounds! She is a bit at first-probably because she is confused about where she is at and who all those other kitties are – but she warms up quickly. She appreciated all the attention I gave her, but what this lovely, quiet lady needs right now is a forever family willing to make her feel safe and special, which she is!” ADOPT OR FOSTER HER TODAY!
