LARRY – A1049200
Urgent 9-2-2015 Brooklyn
***GONE 09/02/15*** POOR LARRY! ONLY A YEAR OLD-ANOTHER ‘STRAY’ CARTED INTO ACC FOR NO GOOD REASON! LARRY comes from Sheepshead Bay section of Brooklyn, and there is a pretty good chance that LARRY was just minding his business when he was carted into the ACC. At first, he allowed himself to be petted, but when the counselor went to collar him he snapped and struck out at her-this isn’t unusual for a cat who may have been mistreated or hurt-sadly, some people might well try to hurt LARRY,, and this is all LARRY knows. LARRY tonight is ‘dead cat walking’ without someone to look past the terror-cats who are afraid and feel cornered will defend themselves. LARRY, in a home, may be a very different cat, but he needs to be pulled by a rescue to get out of ACC alive, and he has going against him that he’s a black cat, he’s ‘struck’ someone, and he’s on a huge list tonight. LARRY is only about a year old. Imagine being brought to a scary dark smelly place with the feel of doom around you. Your world is changed and you’re afraid…what would you do? Tonight, LARRY may be breathing his last breaths-because ACC isn’t quick to give cats like LARRY second chances. This poor boy-will you be the brave person to reach out and offer to foster him? Remember, LARRY did allow petting til his neck was touched. Tonight, believe in what can be, and save LARRY, who is a year old…just a year old.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: Larry was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to was seeing during the evaluation. He seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment Larry was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. Larry may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to strike and is extremely fearful. He currently does not tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. Reaction to assessor: was hiding when I approach cage When spoken quietly: continues to hide Reaction to door cage opening: becomes stiff, alert Reaction to touch: strikes, does not allows petting at all Try picking cat up: did not attempt to pick up Larry due fractious behavior. Placement Determination: NewHope
