MEOW – A1045996
***GONE 08/03/15*** PERFECTLY HEALTHY VOLUPTUOUS YOUNG TUXIE CHARMER, DUMPED FOR NEW BABY, WILL NOW DIE DUE TO HER FEAR – PLEASE GRANT MEOW A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Gorgeous two-year-old tuxie girl MEOW was BETRAYED by her former owners, who dumped this SIXTEEN-POUND chunk of love into the kill-happy ACC due to NEW BABY. At home, Meow was PURRfect: “Meow is shy with new people for a few minutes. She has spent time with children of all ages and is relaxed and affectionate with them. She sniffs the new baby in the home and is relaxed with him. She plays exuberantly with people. She visited a small dog and ignores him. . She loves being brushed. Meow’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, shy, and medium energy. She likes to sunbathe by the window. She follows her family and sits on their feet. She plays with balls, wand toys, stuffed toys, and catnip toys. She lived inside and slept on the couch.” And did I mention that Meow is ALREADY SPAYED? But poor Meow is just TERRIFIED in the scary shelter, so the ACC PUNISHED this dear girl with New Hope Only and fast-tracked her to the noon kill list for tomorrow, despite the fact that Meow is PERFECTLY HEALTHY. The ACC always CLAIMS that they do NOT kill healthy cats, but Meow is PROOF that they DO INDEED KILL THEM on a DAILY BASIS. Please be her rescue angel! Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt zaftig tuxie sweetheart MEOW from the approved New Hope rescue groups! If you can’t save MEOW yourself, please SHARE her sad story and PLEDGE for her rescue!

07/30/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/30/15 19:55 BASIC INFO Meow’s family found her as a stray 2.5 years ago when she was a tiny kitten. They surrendered her because they’ve had a new baby and she’s since been going potty outside of her box. SOCIALIZATION Meow is shy with new people for a few minutes. She has spent time with children of all ages and is relaxed and affectionate with them. She sniffs the new baby in the home and is relaxed with him. She plays exuberantly with people. She visited a small dog and ignores him. BEHAVIOR Meow is relaxed in the car. She loves being brushed. She doesn’t mind being picked up/held, put in a carrier, or woken up, she’s nervous during baths. Meow was littertrained. Her family had a new baby 5 months ago. About 2 months ago, she started urinating and defecating under his crib instead of in her litterbox. They began keeping the door to the bedroom shut and Meow potties right outside the door daily. Until 2 months ago, Meow had always used her hooded litterbox with clumping litter and hadn’t had any accidents. They offered her a larger, uncovered litterbox with clay litter and pellets but her accidents didn’t decrease. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Meow’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, shy, and medium energy. She likes to sunbathe by the window. She follows her family and sits on their feet. She plays with balls, wand toys, stuffed toys, and catnip toys. She lived inside and slept on the couch. She ate dry Iams weight control food and got chicken Temptations treats. She scratches a vertical scratching post with rough rope. INTAKE Meow was lying in a box, a little tense with wide eyes. She allowed us to scan (-) and collar her but began hissing and growling when we tried to pick her up. We transferred her with a net and she didn’t struggle.

08/02/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Meow becomes stiff and alert upon approach. She focuses on the assessor with dilated eyes when softly spoken to. Reaction to cage door opening: Meow remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Meow sniffs the assessor’s hand, but stiffly moves away to avoid touch. When attempting to pet her again, she hisses, starts to growl, and lifts her paw up to prepare to swat. As per previous owner, Meow is shy around new people for a few minutes. She is relaxed and affectionate around children of all ages. She is relaxed around the new baby and plays exuberantly with people. She loves being brushed and doesn’t mind being picked up and held. Meow’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, and shy with a medium energy level. Meow’s previous owners report that she was eliminating under the new baby’s crib for about 2 months. When they closed the door to the bedroom, she started eliminating outside the door. They offered her a larger, uncovered litter box with clay litter and pellets but her accidents didn’t decrease. We advise potential adopters to be aware that this behavior may continue in a home environment, and that they be comfortable with management and modification techniques for this behavioral challenge. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Meow is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment, and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
