KATIE – A1033439
***GONE 05/30/15***NEW MOM LOST HER FAMILY AND NOW MAY LOSE LIFE—PLEASE ADVOCATE FOR KATIE! Meet Katie a young mother who entered the ACC system with her little baby (who was placed). Katie is not much more than a baby herself at only 17 months of age, but she has experienced more loss than many other cats experience in a lifetime. She has already lost her kitten to the shelter system, and she lost whatever her life was like before that fateful day of intake. Miraculously, Katie has managed to be at the ACC for over a month, surviving the euth list once already. Don’t let her luck run out tomorrow! Katie is a pretty young lady who has not managed to charm her captors at the ACC. Since she hasn’t tried to suck up to them, the ACC have left her with a crappy intake photo and they’ve put her on the Rescue Only list, despite Katie’s having earned an ExpNoChild rating. Katie can only be pulled to safety by a New Hope partner. Please advocate for Katie tonight

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Katie was hiding upon approach. When softly spoken to, she doesn’t turn her head to face the assessor, but tries to look from her peripherals. Reaction to cage door opening: Katie remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Katie backs away from the assessor’s hand, but allows touch on her head if you approach her very slowly. She allows gentle strokes on her back, but twitches and flips her head around to watch the assessor’s hand. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Katie tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. 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. ____________________________________________________________________________________ Reaction to assessor: Katie looks neutral in his cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Katie remains hiding in her cat den, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Katie allows the stroke, but shows no interest with the touch.
