Mercedes has been a tough-luck kitty, but she's trying to make a comeback with a new home.
She's currently a resident of the Erie County Humane Society's shelter, seeking a new owner.
There seems to be nowhere to go but up for Mercedes, who came to the shelter after her previous owner abandoned her, then ran her over. Peggy Grant, 24, has pleaded no contest in Sandusky Municipal Court to counts of animal cruelty and animal abandonment and awaits sentencing.
Mercedes has recovered from her injuries and is doing fine. Applications are being taken for a new home, and then the adoption counselor, Kelly Wilson, will make a selection.
