DISCO – A1046716
8-20-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
** SAFE 08/20/15 ** NEW HOPE RATING! People of a certain age will remember that Gloria Gaynor disco anthem, “I Will Survive,” and the massive popularity it enjoyed when it was first released. That song might be the theme song for DISCO, an 8-month-old kitten who is absolutely gorgeous, and absolutely scared out of his mind at the shelter. This stunner will probably settle right down if someone just gives him a minute away from the horrors of the ACC, but the only way that happens is if a New Hope rescue steps up for DISCO, tonight!

I am a male org tabby and white domestic mh. The shelter thinks I am about 8 MONTHS old.
I came in the shelter as a STRAY on 08/05/2015 from NY 11219, owner surrender reason stated was STRAY.

08/08/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: Disco was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. Disco seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment. He was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He is extremely fearful and currently does not tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. Reaction to assessor: at the front of the cage resting When spoken quietly: appears calm Reaction to door cage opening: retreats Reaction to touch: growls, hisses, strikes, does not allows petting at all Try picking cat up: Disco did not allow handling Placement Determination: NewHope
