Mo is an affectionate cat who likes to purr. She has been with Northeast Animal Rescue since last September, when she was rescued after taking a ride in the engine compartment of a car for several miles.
The cat’s name is short for “Motor Oil,” since she was filthy with engine grease, emaciated and full of scabs and hair loss from fleas when she emerged from the engine compartment.
Since then, she has gained weight, her scabs have healed and her fur has grown in beautifully. She loves attention and wants nothing more than a home of her own. She is great with children and may do well in a home with a mellow or laid-back dog.
Mo, who is 21 months old, is spayed and current on vaccinations, and she has tested negative for the feline immunodeficiency and leukemia viruses.
To adopt Mo, fill out an application at http://nar.rescuegroups.org/animals/detail?AnimalID=3130567 or visit PetSmart at 11000 Roosevelt Blvd. ••
Playtime for Jamz
