KAT – A1055657
Urgent 10-27-2015 Manhattan Rescue: Anjellicle Cats Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://bit.ly/KatA1055657
**SAFE 10/27/15** NEW HOPE RESCUE needed for pretty, but scared, KAT! This gorgeous girl was purchased from a breeder a few years back, and has been living with a child and an adult all this time. When that family decided they couldn’t move into a new place with her, and who knows if they even tried to take her back to the breeder, those folks decided that surrendering her to the ACC was the only way out. Now it’s KAT who needs OUT, and since she is so rattled at the ACC, she needs the help of a NEW HOPE RESCUE in order to escape! If you can foster or adopt this pretty girl, if you are willing to let her chill out at her own pace, please work with a New Hope rescue group in order to save her life. Otherwise, please share KAT to the moon and back, tonight!

She started to display signs of discomfort once brought into a kennel. She began to hiss and yowl when someone approaches her. Reaction to assessor: Kat was stress meowing from behind a covered cage. As the assessor lifts the cage cover, she yowls very loudly and focuses on the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Kat continues to stress meow. Reaction to cage door opening: Kat remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Kat hisses at the assessor’s hand, but allows brief touch on her head. She shifts her body away and continues to stress meow. When attempting to pet her again, she starts to growl and lifts her paw up to prepare to swat.
