DIA – A1061197
Urgent 12-30-2015 Brooklyn
**SAFE 12/30/15** Gorgeous DIA had lived with one person for all of her days, and must have trusted that person implicitly. Picture her surprise and horror when that same person casually dumped her at the ACC for “no time,” which is exactly what the ACC say DIA has right now. DIA earned an EXPNOCHILD rating because she is rattled at the shelter, but she’s a 4-year-old spayed pet who should mellow out if someone just gives her a little bit of love. Please advocate strongly for DIA, tonight!

12/28/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Dia’s previous owner states that she has lived with one adult and has not been around children, dogs, or other cats. She was kept indoors and has a medium activity level. She was described as quiet, independent, and shy. Reaction to Assessor: Dia was eating by the front, calm and relaxed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Dia ignores the assessor and continues to eat. Reaction to cage door opening: Dia stops eating and remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Dia allows brief petting, but grumbles when pet on her back. She stiffens and watches the assessor’s hand and continues to grumble. If the warning is ignored and you continue to pet her, she will meow and pat the assessor’s hand multiple times without nails. She will watch the hand and grumble until you take it away. Placement Determination: Experience No Child Dia tolerates attention and petting but after a few soft passes, she begins to grumble. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat. 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 Dia becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention. We feel that this cat will do best in a home with experienced cat parents and without children.
