FUMBLES – A1038798
**SAFE 06/11/15** Here’s the thing: people think the ACC will work hard to find loving homes for the animals in their care, plus, no one believes that the cats they are surrendering, will be killed. Those rose-colored glasses made it possible for FUMBLES and his housemates to be surrendered to the ACC by a former owner who had a laundry list of reasons that they couldn’t keep the cats any longer, and tomorrow, those rose-colored glasses are going to be the death of this really nice boy. FUMBLES is only a little more than a year old, his social notes show a lovely boy…but all the ACC sees is one more name on a clipboard, one more dose of poison, one more black plastic freezer bag. FUMBLES is an exceptional cat who deserves a happily-ever-after. Make sure he gets it by sharing him far and wide, tonight!

Also, describes him as relaxed, affectionate, tolerant, and play exuberantly with each other. Reaction to assessor: Fumbles looks tense in cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Fumbles remains at the back of the cage, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Fumbles allows the stroke, but lip licks in place with ears down and began to yowl at the assessor. Placement determination: Experience / no child Fumbles tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful 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.
