“I have a cat named Tilly. She was born in 2010. She is a Tortoiseshell kitty. She was found as a tiny kitten under a pile of rubble when the tornado cane thru that year and destroyed many parts in my area in Vale. Her mother and siblings were not so lucky. She was featured on that evening’s news segment. I have had her ever since that day. She is sweet, is spayed, is an inside cat, and gets along great with dogs. My situation has changed. I had to have an unscheduled emergency hysterectomy 3 weeks ago. I have been out of work and may be out for much longer. I do not have short term disability so I have had no income. Due to this and my extensive medical bills and home possibly going into foreclosure I am having to possibly file bankruptcy. I am having to to find homes for my pets. They will only go to approved homes. I would like to find a wonderful home for her before I have to move so she is placed and I know she is happy. Thank you!” If you can give this beautiful cat her new forever home, please contact Tammy Franklin at email@example.com or 828-234-9204
