MINGLE – A1055903
Urgent 10-30-2015 Brooklyn
**SAFE 10/30/15** NEW HOPE RESCUE is needed for MINGLE, a beautiful young dude who was brought to the ACC in “a bag with holes in it.” That sounds like something any cat would hate, and it certainly set the tone for MINGLE to be distrustful of his new surroundings. Given that he is in perfect health otherwise, he is probably someone’s pet who just happened to cross paths with someone who thinks all cats should be eradicated. Unfortunately, that person’s wish is going to come true tomorrow at noon, unless a NEW HOPE rescue group steps up for Mingle, tonight!
My name is MINGLE. My Animal ID # is A1055903.
I am a male black and white domestic sh mix. The shelter thinks I am about 3 YEARS old.
I came in the shelter as a STRAY on 10/24/2015 from NY 11230, owner surrender reason stated was STRAY.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Update 10/29/15 Mingle is not thriving in the care center; he was tolerant of interaction previously, but is now creating distance and avoiding interactions. He growls upon approach and shifts away to avoid being touched. He has not escalated or shown any aggression, but it is in Mingle’s best interest to move out of the kennel environment and into a stable home as quickly as possible. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. Date: 10/28/15 Mingle was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. The finder found him in their building and was able to bring him in a bag with holes in it. He allowed the counselor to transfer him into a carrier. He was very nervous upon intake, but allowed handling when approached very slowly. Reaction to assessor: Mingle was calm and relaxed upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Mingle looks at the assessor with relaxed eyes, and then looks away. Reaction to cage door opening: Mingle remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Mingle meows very softly, lowers his head, and remains immobile when pet on his head and body. He leans slightly on the assessor’s hand, but seems wary of the environment. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Mingle tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. Mingle may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. 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.
