***SAFE 06/02/15*** ***CHIRPING, PURRING KITTEN LOVEBUG, ORIGINALLY ADOPTED FROM THE ACC BUT DUMPED BACK THERE FOR BEING “TOO ACTIVE”, WILL NOW DIE BECAUSE HE SNEEZED – PLEASE GRANT LANGSTON A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Adorable ebony-furred kitten LANGSTON has a gorgeous plush-velvet coat and a fun-loving, very energetic PURRsonality, but this little love was BETRAYED by his old owner, who had first ADOPTED Langston from the kill-happy ACC, only to dump him BACK there because Langston is (wait for it) “TOO ACTIVE”. For crying out loud, he’s a KITTEN. Why didn’t they just get a stuffed animal if they didn’t want an active pet? At home. Langston was “an inside cat with a very high activity level. He allows his family to pick him up. He likes to perch at the window. Langston plays with all cat toys and will also jump on the cabinets, table, and go through the garbage. His owners state he is always on the move.” Langston earned a very good EXPERIENCE behavior rating for his CHIRPS, RUBS, PURRS, and MEOWS! But this adorable little laddie will DIE AT NOON TOMORROW via lethal injection, another INNOCENT VICTIM of the notorious ACC kitty cold and a badly broken shelter system. Please don’t let them silence his purrs forever! Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt adorable, energetic kitten lovebug LANGSTON! If you can’t save LANGSTON yourself, please SHARE his sad story and PLEDGE for his rescue!

05/20/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Langston came to us as an owner surrender on 5/15/15. It was reported by the previous owner that Langston lived with 3 adults, one 8 year old, and another cat. He is gentle with his humans as long as no food is involved or they are not trying to remove objects from his mouth, such as a plastic bag, toothbrush, or food related items. The owner stated that Langston will growl at his owners around food or other objects (toothbrushes) that he puts in his mouth, when the owner tries to take them away from him. Langston could be seen with very soft and friendly body language in the kennel as the assessor approaches. He immediately begins to solicit attention from the owner, and is easily pet softly and picked up without displaying any signs of aggression. Due to Langston’s previous owner’s information for Langston being highly food-motivated and may growl, hiss, or swat if food is taken away from him. We recommend experienced adopters prepared to manage the environment to keep inappropriate food away from Langston and who can teach him to take food and treats gently. Reaction to assessor: comes to front of cage – soliciting, rubbing against cage front, reaching out with paws (1) When spoken to quietly: stays at front – continues to solicit attention, rubbing, purring, meowing (1) Reaction to cage door opening: remains soft and relaxed (1) Reaction to touch: solicits petting and attention – rubs, chirps, meows (1) Reaction to being picked up: Easily picked up and maintains very soft body language.
