BABY – A1057385
Urgent 11-28-2015 Brooklyn
***SAFE 11/28/15*** BABY was surrendered due to “attacking people”. Yet after a little time in the care center,and a really hard place to open up to people, BABY allowed handling and slowly opened up to her assessor. She’s only lived around adults and a 13 year old but never around young children, cats or dogs. So to say that BABY attacked, is unusual and not believable! Most people need to wipe their conscious when they DUMP their pet so they make something up! Regardless,the one and a half year old is RATED RESCUE ONLY because of that. PLEASE, contact a NEW HOPE RESCUE and offer to FOSTER or ADOPT BABY. Don’t let her die because her previous owners didn’t have the descentsy to keep their cat but instead, leave her off at a place where she could die!

As per previous owner, Baby is described as playful, confident, friendly, and affectionate but shy around new people. Baby likes to play with toys that make noise, toy mice and her favorite treats are greenies. When her family is home she likes to be in the same room as them. Baby’s behavior has been monitored by the enrichment facilitator. It was recorded that when Baby first arrived she was tense, and allowed no handling. During her stay she slowly opened up, allowing petting and soliciting attention. Reaction to assessor: Baby makes eye contact in front of her feral den. Her tail is flickering and her eyes are wide. Reaction when softly spoken to: Baby leans her head forward soliciting attention. Reaction to cage door opening: Baby is calm and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Baby leans her head in for attention and allows petting. She doesn’t come forward and her tail continues to flicker. Reaction to being picked up: Baby starts to low growl and hisses when attempting to pick her up. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Baby tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
