GABBY – A1037004
***SAFE 05/31/15*** GABBY WAS LEFT AT THE SHELTER WHEN HER OWNER MOVED – SHE FREAKED AT INTAKE AND NOW THE ACC IS GOING TO KILL A PERFECTLY HEALTHY CAT!!! GABBY’s owner had to scan her for a microchip because this pretty girl knew he was trying to dump her in the kill shelter and she didn’t want to be there!! HOW CAN YOU DO THIS TO A PET YOU HAD FOR 8 YEARS!!!! After this heartless act, her owner left her to sit in a cold steel cage and wonder what she did to deserve this. Gabby had lived with this person since she was a 2 month old kitten and now sits on DEATH ROW TO BE KILLED THURSDAY if nobody steps up for her. GABBY is 8 years old and already spayed. She is shy but friendly. BECAUSE SHE WAS AFRAID IN THE SHELTER SHE GOT AN EXPONOCHILD RATING WHICH WAS JUST ENOUGH FOR THE ACC TO PUT HER ON TONIGHT’S LIST. GIVE THIS BEAUTIFUL GRAY GIRL A FUREVER HOME WHERE SHE WILL NEVER BE ABANDONED AGAIN. CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO SAVE HER LIFE.

Notes: At the time of the assessment she was displaying fearful behavior; Gabby comes to the front of the kennel when spoken to softly but retreats and becomes alert when the kennel door was opened. Retreats as I started to get closer but after a steady low approach using soft voices she relaxed a little and I was able to pet her and interact with her. Gabby only allows some petting before beoming overstimulated. I was also able to pick her up. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents with no children. Reaction to assessor: does not come to front but looks at you, is calm, relaxed and friendly (1) When spoken quietly: comes to the front of cage, soliciting, rubbing against front (1) Reaction to door cage opening: retreats (3) Reaction to touch: allows limited petting before becoming overstimulated Try picking cat up: tolerant of this type of handling but tense. Placement Determination: Experience no child
