GRAVY – A1048718
***GONE 08/26/15*** GRAVY really got groady former ‘owners’. After a year-they had gotten this cat from someone else-they dump him at ACC stating ‘he wasn’t adjusting to them very well’. AFTER A YEAR? So now this 3 year old neutered boy who’s been in a home his whole life is terrified at ACC. GRAVY deserves so much better. He deserves to be wanted and appreciated for the cat he is, not some stuffed toy cat that his former folks seem to have wanted. GRAVY wasn’t even fed properly, he was given dry dog food, which is actually bad for cats. Now, GRAVY is in danger and needs you-in fact, you stand between him and being killed tomorrow. All you have to do is offer to foster him. Think he’d be hard-think again. This is a boy who knows he’s not been wanted. He’d be thrilled to be with someone who would care about him. Will it be you to help him live? FOSTER GRAVY AND SAVE HIS LIFE!!!

Gravy had a vertical scratching post made of rough rope, but he also scratched on furniture. When his previous owners were home Gray liked to stay in his favorite spot. When he played with his previous owner he was gentle. He enjoys car rides and ate dry dog food. At night he slept in his cat bed.

08/25/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Gravy looks tense in his cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Gravy remains tightly curled up at the back of the cage, alert with direct stare. Reaction to touch: Gravy accepts the stroke and shows some interest by leaning into the assessor’s hand; however, he becomes cautious to sudden noises and began to hiss. Placement determination: Experience / no child Gravy 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.
