EMMA – A1057990
Urgent 11-20-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 11/20/15*** EMMA is another victim of being surrendered due to “personal problems”. A REASON without really being a reason just to DUMP a cat and wipe their conscious clean! The almost 2 year old is already SPAYED and is ready to go. She may have a petting induced aggression which causes her to swat when pet. She’s going to need a new owner that is familiar with this kind of behavior arousal. But she needs someone NOW,to FOSTER or ADOPT her! She can be helped by experience and loving people… But she can’t be helped if she stays in this shelter. She may not make it to tomorrow!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Emma’s former owner described her as playful, confident, and affectionate with a medium activity level. Reaction to assessor: Emma looks neutral in her cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Emma stands up in place, relaxed body posture, meowing attention. Reaction to touch: Emma accepts the stroke then began to head-butt the assessor’s hand, but after a few strokes, she starts to meow whine in place and gentle nip, while she continues to solicit. Placement determination: Experience / no child Initially Emma solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to meow whine and nip 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 Emma becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
