OCA – A1039112
***GONE 06/09/15*** 8 MONTH OLD OCA NEEDS YOU TONIGHT!!! OCA is a timid cat that the ‘owner’ was trying to work with, along with the other cats surrendered, due to landlord issues. He’s timid, but coming along and allows petting. OCA with patience will be a wonderful cat-he’s the kind of cat that just needs to be reassured that his world won’t turn upside down again. OCA needs you-because he won’t get the chance at anything if someone doesn’t rescue him….he’s a great little guy who gets on wonderfully with other cats as well! OCA is a kitten-a scared kitten-but kittens do come to realize who cares about them and play and treats go a long way to love. PLEASE DON’T LET OCA be killed-reach out and rescue this creamy orangey boy tonight!!!!

06/08/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Oca did not come to the front, but remained neutral inside his cage. When softly spoken to, he looks at the assessor and blinks. Reaction to cage door opening: Oca becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Oca was hesitant of touch, but allows brief touch on his head. When trying to pet his back, he slowly tries to move away to avoid touch and starts to lip lick. As per previous owner, Oca was found outside and they have been attempting to socialize him for the past 2-months. They described him as playful and energetic, with a very high activity level. Oca was affectionate and gentle with the other cats that lived with him. They never held him because he hasn’t been fully socialized yet. Owner says Oca does not like to be placed in the carrier and will hiss and swat. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Oca tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He 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.
