AMELIA – A1059652
Urgent 12-19-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 12/19/15***AWESOME AMELIA NEEDS HOLIDAY MIRACLE! Poor Amelia is a victim of her former owner’s “personal problems.” We do not know what situation helped facilitate this sweet but sad four year old kitty’s surrender to the kill happy shelter. But we do know that if we don’t do everything we can to advocate for this terrific tabby’s precious life tonight, she will become another sad ACC stat when tomorrow afternoon rolls around. Amelia has not had a medical check in over a week. At that time, she was purrfectly healthy. She is also a good girl who tolerates petting and handling but is recommended to go to a home without kids since she gets overstimulated. She does not deserve what the ACC has planned for her tomorrow. She needs a rescue angel to save her precious life. Can you be the kind purrson and Amelia’s hero? Please reserve this terrific tabby online or let a rescue know if you can help. Transportation is available. Contact [email protected] for assistance. Let’s get started NOW because Amelia is running out of time!!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Amelia looks neutral in her cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Amelia remains sitting upright on her cage bedding, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Amelia accepts the stroke, head-butts the assessor’s hand, but after a few strokes she began to hiss and swat with no claws. Placement determination: Experience / no child Initially Amelia solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to hiss and swat at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Amelia becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
