***GONE 09/24/16***SWEET GRAY & WHITE TABBY GIRL SEEKS RESCUE ASAP! STORM is a 1 year old cutie pie! She had been given as a gift to her previous owner by a family member, but they couldn’t keep her because of allergies, so this sweet young thing is desperately hoping she won’t be killed tomorrow at the shelter! STORM was a great pet cat. She played well with adults and children that lived in the home and who came to visit. This sensitive gray girl is afraid at the shelter and doesn’t trust the people around her who are examining her. Because she’s shy and scared, she can only be rescued through a New Hope Rescue. STORM just needs some patience and TLC to let her inner cat shine! Please rescue SWEET STORM by contacting [email protected] TODAY before it’s too late!!!
