MIMI – A1040930
***GONE 06/25/15*** FRIENDLY AND AFFECTIONATE MIMI WAS DUMPED INTO THE KILL HAPPY ACC WHEN HER OWNER WAS MOVING – SHE IS VERY UPSET AND THIS SUPER SWEET GIRL IS NOW NEW HOPE RATED AND WILL DIE FOR HER FEAR!! MIMI is one smart cat! Her owner described her as friendly, affectionate and outgoing with strangers. Yet, she smelled a rat when she was brought into the ACC to be dumped for moving. MIMI hissed and swatted in utter distaste at the intake desk and then proceeded to hide in the back of her cage when the infamous assessor showed up. Consequently, she was slapped with an UNFAIR NEW HOPE RATING for her fear and anger in the shelter and was warehoused til tonight’s list. MIMI is no dope- she will warm up and snuggle with the person she knows is going to be her new best friend and cat parent. BUT SHE WON’T HAVE THAT CHANCE UNLESS YOU CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO PULL HER OFF THIS DEATH ROW LIST AND INTO YOUR SAFE AND SECURE HOME. CONTACT A RESCUE NOW- DON’T LEAVE IT TO SOMEONE ELSE – THAT SOMEONE MAY NEVER DO IT AND MIMI WILL BE GONE FOREVER. SHE IS SUCH A NICE CAT AND DESERVES TO LIVE!!

06/20/15 19:35 BASIC INFO Mimi’s owner got her 5 years ago from her previous owner when her parents had kittens. She had to surrender her because she’s moving out of the country. SOCIALIZATION Mimi is friendly and outgoing with strangers. She lived with 2 children ages 5-15 and is relaxed, affectionate, and tolerant with them. She plays somewhat rough with adults and older children that initiate rough play, but plays gently with smaller, quieter children. Once a large dog came over and approached her. She hissed, ran, and hid. She’s never bit/scratched anyone. BEHAVIOR Mimi has no known behavior issues. She cries in the car. She enjoys being held. She doesn’t mind being brushed or woken up. She’s nervous when put in a carrier. She initially struggles during nail trims but then sits still and tolerates it. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Mimi’s family describes her as friendly, affectionate, playful, mellow, talkative, and medium energy. She likes that Mimi weaves between her legs, rubbing against them, and that if she holds her arm out and calls Mimi, she’ll jump up onto her arm. Mimi follows her owner around and sits in her lap often. She enjoys being held and will sit with her on the couch all day. She likes to play with balls, string, and stuffed toys. She lived inside and slept on the couch or her cat bed. She ate dry Purina indoor food. She enjoyed chicken and ham. She used an uncovered litterbox with clumping and clay litter and also pottied in the bath tub. She’s littertrained and didn’t have accidents (except in the bathtub). When the bathroom door is closed, she only potties in her litterbox. She used to scratch a leather couch, but her owner bought her a vertical carpeted scratching post, and now she only scratches the post. INTAKE Mimi hissed in her carrier. We picked her up and put her on the table for pictures. She continued hissing and her ears pointed a little back. Her owner approached, and she rolled around but continued hissing. She jumped onto the floor. Her owner picked her up and put her in a carrier. She walked in, but then turned around, hissed, and struck the cage door. We were unable to scan or collar her.
