INDY – A1036410
***GONE 05/19/15*** PERFECTLY HEALTHY INDY IS GOING TO BE KILLED BECAUSE OF HER FEAR- PLEASE GRANT THIS CUTIE A DEATH ROW PARDON TONIGHT! INDY was found 5 weeks ago by someone who kept her for 4 and then gave INDY to her sister. After only a week her sister’s son was afraid of the cat and seemed to have allergies so this person just dumped poor INDY in the ACC where she is now terrified. INDY thought she had found a home. Sadly, now this kitty who was described as friendly, affectionate and playful is now NEW HOPE RATED because she got spooked at the assessors fake hand!! THIS IS A CAT WHO WAS AFFECTIONATE TOWARDS A CHILD. Now poor INDY will die because of her retreating to the back of her cage when a fake plastic hand was pushed in her face. GIVE THIS CAT A BREAK AND REALIZE SHE IS JUST AFRAID AND IS A VERY WONDERFUL LOVING PET. CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO PULL HER TO SAFETY.

05/15/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
05/15/15 12:17 BASIC INFO Indy was found as a stray 5 weeks ago. Her finder kept her for 4 weeks and gave her to her sister when she moved out of state. Her new owner has had her for one week but her differently abled, asthmatic son is afraid of her and having allergic reactions. SOCIALIZATION Indy is friendly/outgoing with strangers. She was relaxed, affectionate, and tolerant with the child in her home. She played rough with the adult and child in the home (they didn’t play with her with toys). She swatted at their feet when they walked by and lightly bit the adult’s hand once, likely during play (no broken skin). BEHAVIOR Indy is relaxed in the car. She doesn’t mind being picked up/held, put in a carrier, or woken up. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Indy’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, independent, pretty, and medium activity. She follows her family sometimes. She played with a ball. She lived inside and slept on a cat bed. She ate dry food. She used an uncovered litterbox with clumping litter. She usually used her litterbox but urinated on the bed once. She scratches cardboard boxes (she didn’t have a scratching post). INTAKE Indy walked into her kennel and allowed me to scan (negative) and pet her. She was meowing and head butted me. She backed up when I attempted to collar her. She immediately resumed head butting me, so I tried again. She made a snarly noise, stepped towards me, and swatted towards me on the bottom of her kennel. She meows and rolls around on her side in her kennel when we’re nearby or in front of her kennel but sometimes snarls and swats out of her cage or raises her paw when we approach or reach our hand towards her kennel.

She played rough with adults and the child (nipping at the hand during play and swatting at their feet when they walked by.

Behavior Determination: NH ONLY Indy is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home.

The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
