***SAFE 03/08/16*** PERFECTLY HEALTHY ZACK IS A GIRL KITTY WHO IS A ONE YEAR OLD KITTEN WHO IS AFFECTIONATE WITH YOUNG CHILDREN AND OTHER CATS BUT SHE WAS DUMPED FOR LITTERBOX ISSUES AND WILL DIE FOR IT. Yes, ZACK is a girl cat. And she is not spayed. Do you think that may have something to do with the fact she is soiling the home when there is another cat – a MALE – in the house?? Hmmmm just sayin’. Or maybe the box is not being cleaned regularly? Anyway, ZACK’s clueless owner has decided to dump this cat rather than fix her or consult a vet. Now this very sweet and affectionate girl is afraid in the scary shelter and even though she is perfectly healthy, the ACC won’t give her a chance to warm up. In her home she was playful, chased balls, and the other cat in the home. Now, this poor girl is afraid and destined to die unless someone steps up for her tonight. CAN YOU GIVE THIS PURRFECTLY ADORABLE AND PLAYFUL GIRL A HOME? OFFER TO FOSTER OR ADOPT ZACK AND YOU WILL SAVE HER LIFE!!
