GEMSTONE – A1049357
***GONE 08/31/15*** PERFECTLY HEALTHY 11-POUND YOUNG TABBY “STRAY” GIRL HAS A GREAT BEHAVIOR RATING, BUT THE ACC WILL KILL HER ANYWAY – PLEASE GRANT GEMSTONE A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Gorgeous four-year-old white and brown tabby girl GEMSTONE finds herself stuffed into the kill-happy ACC as a STRAY, but her 11-pound weight and the fact that she entered the shelter FREE of fleas and ear mites tell us that Gemstone is a lost or abandoned pet kitty! This adorable jewel of a cat earned a very good EXPNOCHILD behavior rating: “Gemstone remains soft and relaxed. Gemstone meows, remains in place for petting, and lifts her butt when petted on her lower back.” But the ACC will MURDER this poor girl at noon tomorrow, despite the fact that Gemstone is PERFECTLY HEALTHY! Please save her before it’s too late. Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt precious GEMSTONE! If you can’t save GEMSTONE yourself, please SHARE her sad story and PLEDGE for her rescue!

08/30/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Gemstone was calm and relaxed upon approach. She looks at the assessor and starts to breathe rapidly when softly spoken to. Reaction to cage door opening: Gemstone remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Gemstone meows, remains in place for petting, and lifts her butt when pet on her lower back. Her tail flickers rapidly, she starts to purr, and she leans on the assessor’s hand, however, she may have become irritated after some time and she starts to growl. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Gemstone initially solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to growl 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 Gemstone becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention. 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.
