ZITA – A1067993
Safe - 4-3-2016 Manhattan
***SAFE 04/03/16*** Poor ZITA doesn’t look too happy in her photo. And why would she be? Her owner dropped this sweet 2 year old female at the shelter because her owner had personal problems. ZITA, came in pregnant and her kittens were aborted. This gorgeous brown and gray tabby with the big yellow eyes is really hoping to find a new home ASAP before she gets euthanized at the shelter tomorrow! ZITA is a friendly girl who would be great in an average pet home. Her previous owner describes her as friendly and shy. She loved staying in the same room as her owner. This poor girl is probably missing the only home she ever knew! Despite being sad, she is open to affection. She appreciates being pet and purred and rubbed against a staffers hand when she was visited. This beautiful kitty would make a loyal and affectionate BFFF (Best Furry Friend Forever!) Please rescue ZITA today!!
