SAFE 08/06/15 A volunteer writes: Little Lace has a lovely face. She has the typical tiger markings and the greenest eyes I have ever seen. Her eyes are like two giant emeralds set in gold. Lace called out to me as soon as she spotted me and called me back when I started to walk away. She is small and girly, as her name implies. Lace is simply looking to find her forever place.

Owner Surrender Profile
The owner came into surrender his cat because he no longer has a need for the cat. He explained that he used to live in the projects and needed the cat to catch mice and rats. He no longer lives in the projects and has a baby on the way so “the cats got to go.” The owner also said that the cat is mean. I asked him to explain what he means and he said that when people walk back she jumps and scratches their legs. I explained that the behavior is play aggression and how interactive play would help with this behavior. The owner said something to the effect that he was not interested in knowing. He also said they never he named the cat despite having the cat for 2 years.

7/17 update: Lace remains social and easy to handle with her human care takers. However, she has been noted to hiss whenever another cat passes near her kennel. Due to this behavior, we recommend she go to a home with no other cats and/or any potential adopter is counseled on introducing cats slowly and are aware of the possibility that Lace may be uncomfortable around other cats.
Notes: Lace was bought into the care center due to her previous owner being pregnant. Lace at the time of the assessment she was displaying friendly behavior, comes to the front of the kennel, interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Lace is displaying behavior appropriate for a beginner cat owner.
Reaction to assessor: comes to the front of the cage, soliciting, rubbing against the cage front
When spoken quietly: stays at front, continues soliciting attention
Reaction to door cage opening: remains soft & relaxed
Reaction to touch: solicits petting and attention
Try picking cat up: tolerant of this type of handling.
