MARGARET – A1052553
Urgent 10-1-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 10/01/15*** BEAUTIFUL, Maine Coon MARGARET does not like being in the shelter and just wants to go HOME! The 6 year old has been surrendered due to “personal problems”. And now MARGARET is left all alone and facing DEATH! She has been socialized around children,ages 2 and 4. She DOES NOT like being around dogs which is important to know for a potential foster or adopter. She’s frightened but tolerates attention and petting so her scared nature is the reason for the EXPNOCHILD rating. PLEASE, offer to give this sweet girl a home! Look at her little face …she’s begging for a HOME!

09/30/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Margaret looks neutral in her cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Margaret remains lying down on her cage bedding, alert with relaxed face. Reaction to touch: Margaret accepts the stroke but began to grumble in place while her ears go down to the side and tail flick. Placement determination: Experience / no child Margaret tolerates attention and petting but may be stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
