NARWHALE – A1052269
Urgent 9-26-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
**SAFE 09/26/15** FLAMINGO and NARWHALE are two adorable cats who have been subjected to the usual ACC treatment: the crappy names, the blame-the-victim shelter comments, the exposure to horrible germs, and the utter inability to get them adopted. These cats were trapped outside of an airport and it’s no surprise that they would be fearful and attempt to flee—goodness, what cat would willingly jump into a trap and then think the ACC was the best thing ever? Both FLAMINGO and NARWHALE earned respectable EXPERIENCE ratings and should settle down into nice pets, given a little time to decompress. If YOU can offer them the livesaving TLC and space in your home, please FOSTER or ADOPT! Otherwise, please pledge toward their care and share these beautiful cats everywhere you can think of. Save FLAMINGO and NARWHALE tonight!

09/24/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: Narwhale was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment he was displaying timid behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Remains motionless as I started to get closer but after a steadys low approach using soft voices he relaxed a little and I was able to pet him and interact with him. I was also able to pick him up and although he was tense no fractious behavior was display. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. Reaction to assessor: does not come to front but remains neutra When spoken quietly: does not come to front but remains neutral Reaction to door cage opening: remains motionless Reaction to touch: allows petting, leans into chin rubs Try picking cat up: Narwhale is tolerant of this type of handling but tense. Placement Determination: Experience
