HARLEY – A1053004
Urgent 10-4-2015 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 10/04/15***GORGEOUS AND SWEET MAINE COON MIX NEEDS YOU-BE HARLEY’S HERO! Harley is a beautiful five year old, spayed angel who desperately needs us to advocate for her precious life tonight. She came into the shelter on 9/28 as a “stray” but this lovely lady is most likely someone’s lost or abandoned pet. Despite being a little scared during intake, Harley showed no aggression and was calm, relaxed and friendly during her behavior eval—just didn’t like it when she was picked up. She still scored a respectable experienced no kids rating and would be a purrfect snuggling buddy to her lucky new purrson. Could that special someone be you? Harley is relatively healthy—she was treated for ear mites when she came into the shelter and has an old hematoma on one of her ears—which we think makes her even more adorable. Please reserve Harley online or let a rescue know if you can help. Transportation is available if you live within a few hours of NYC (for adoption) and please let a rescue know if you can foster and live no more than an hour away from NYC. Harley is a gorgeous and sweet precious pet. She only has tonight. Please open your heart and home to this fab feline. Be Harley’s hero and be the change that you want to see in the world.

10/01/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Harley was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was tense upon intake, but allowed the staff to handle her without signs of aggression. She also allowed handling during her initial medical exam. Reaction to assessor: Harley comes to the front and is calm, relaxed, and friendly. Reaction when softly spoken to: Harley head-butts the cage door and reaches out with her paws. Reaction to cage door opening: Harley remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Harley allows all petting, but attempts to explore outside her cage. Reaction to being picked up: Harley allows handling, but hisses and struggles to be put back down. When put back down, she swats and hisses. She rubs her cheeks on her litter box when softly spoken to, but her tail sways from side to side and she will swat when attempting to pet her again. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Initially Harley solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to hiss and swat 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 Harley becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
