TINK – A1065705
Gone - 3-3-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 03/03/16 *** TINK HAS A VERY INTERESTING HISTORY……She was surrendered for attacking people yet her bio says she never bit anyone. She did scratch because she is an essentially timid cat. She did get along well with the family children and the other cat but not with the dog…..NOW POOR TINK IS ON HER OWN & EVEN MORE TERRIFIED THAN BEFORE!! She has a NEW HOPE rating. She is also not spayed which may contribute to her behavior. The family also dumped the other housecat ODEN….PLEASE GIVE TINK A FIGHTING CHANCE TONIGHT!! In the right home, she will be a great cat!! PLEASE APPLY TO FOSTER OR ADOPT NOW!! If you need assistance, email [email protected]
