WIMBERTON aka WINBERTON – 17216
Safe - 1-11-2018 Brooklyn
SAFE 1/11/18 A volunteer writes: Wimberton can be described as a “hands-on” type of girl. As I was standing in front of her kennel, I felt someone tapping my leg. I looked down and saw this funny cat reaching out to me with her paws. When I knelt down to pet her, Wimberton continued to touch me with her two front paws in a very friendly and gentle way. She did the same thing to other people who came in to see her. Wimberton is gregarious and sociable and would love to give you a helping hand around your home. She’s guaranteed to make you smile.
**WIMBERTON is an owner surrender who is shy but allows all handling. She needs a furever home asap!
