Essence is just 9 months old and she's a lucky little lady.  She was one of many kittens that a resident in a neighboring town was trying to help but when that person called their local Animal Control, they were told to stop feeding the cats and they would go away.....  Well, that's not what our ACO Maria likes to hear!  Our ACO took in little Essence and others and now this precious girl has a chance at a happy life in a safe home.  Safety is very important to Essence.  She's a shy little girl that needs her space, alone-time, and will need time to settle into a new home.  Once Essence trusts you, she's just a little mush. 

She's very playful and she loves other cats, and a home with another cat would be great for her.  If you can give little Essence the patient and loving home she deserves, call 609-693-1900 or email: for an application.  File#29922  12/18/20
