Safe - 8-10-2018 Manhattan Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
SAFE 8/10/18 NEW PHOTOS! 9 year old STAR was surrendered by her owner. She is already spayed and hoping someone will adopt her asap. STAR should have a follow up vet check to make sure all is well as owner reported a history of vomiting. Owner is saying her behavior has changed since then also. No mention of owner taking Star to the vet to find out if anything medical had an affect on behavior. Shelter vet only found an electrolyte imbalance. Star needs someone who will go the extra mile to find out what is the matter and give her lots of TLC and a furever home. A volunteer writes: I can see how star got her name, there is a bright and shiny aura about her as she calmly but alertly sits in her cubby taking in the goings on around her. Although she keeps her distance , this kitty is privy to treats; eagerly lapping them up. And will let you gently rub her cheeks and stroke her head. Like many felines, she likes to get to know you first before coming forward. A calm but bright girl who will do best with someone who will let her proceed at her own pace.
