TO BE KILLED - 1/14/2019
She looks like a very serious girl and she is NOT, she is having A LOT OF FUN! Please share! :)
A volunteer writes:
Zena is a real bowl of fun, a born entertainer who enjoys playing with balls and toys and amuses her caretakers with her enthusiasm and joie de vivre! Zena is indeed a delight to spend time with! She is a pleasant little walker, likely house trained, an excellent sitter, a paw shaker and a polite treat sampler. If it was not enough, she is a pretty gal, smartly dressed in a very corporate outfit. Would you ever guess that she so funny? Well, come and see for yourself! Our little grey mouse is waiting for you at the Manhattan Care Center!
