LUNA – 34510
Safe - 8-9-2018 Manhattan
SAFE 8/9/18 WATCH HER VIDEO! Luna is a spayed black and white domestic short hair female, that is 9 years old. Owner could no longer keep because his new home did not allow pets. Luna is missing some teeth and has severe dental disease. She will need follow up care. A volunteer writes: Pretty Luna is right in the spotlight (moonlight) as she gently rubs up against the kennel door. A family cat, she loves to be around people and kids; she previously lived with a child. As you can see if you watch the video, this is a very affectionate, friendly and full of life feline. Her eyes get intense when curiosity grabs her as she pokes her head out but doesn’t get too pushy. Toss a few treats and she’ll prance around in joy. Striking feature? Those whiskers, of course! You can’t go wrong with this gentle young sprite who will get along well. A sweet “family kitty”!
