*** SAFE 09/24/15 *** NIKA IS CREAMSICLE GIRL WHO HAS LIVED ON THE STREET…..Only a year old someone found her and brought her to the ACC….From her assessment, one can see that NIKA is a lot more interested in food at this point than at interaction. And maybe her interations on the street have made her wary. NIKA NEEDS SOME KIND WORDS, SOME TLC AND SOME TIME…and we know the ACC isn’t offering those….PLEASE CONSIDER FOSTERING THIS LITTLE LADY JUST OUT OF KITTENHOOD!! Fostering is free and saves lives!! CONTACT A NEW HOPE RESCUE AND HELP NIKA FIND A HAPP NEW LIFE!!

09/21/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Nika does not come to the front but looks at the assessor and begins to eat dry food. Reaction when softly spoken to: Nika does not react and continues to eat the dry food. Reaction to cage door opening: Nika stops eating and becomes alert – raising her head and looking around. Reaction to touch: Nika flinches away from the touch, hisses at the assessor, retreats into her cage and goes back to eating. Behavior Determination: Experienced, no children. Nika tolerates attention but may be fearful or 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. 9/22 additional note: Nika is not thriving in the kennel environment, hissing repeatedly when approached in adoptions. It is in Nika’s best interest to move into a stable home as quickly as possible. We have no known history on Nika, so we cannot be sure how much of this behavior may be due to environmental stress.
