ORZO – A1055725
Urgent 10-29-2015 Manhattan
**GONE 10/29/15** Please, look past ORZO’s wadded-up posture; please look past the fearful shadows in his eyes. Please see the real ORZO, the loving and cheerful companion; the cat who was always there for his best friend, Gnocchi, with whom he entered the ACC. ORZO is only a baby, but this boy has seen more horror during his time at the ACC than most cats will see over the course of their long lives. ORZO deserves to know the good life of a loved pet, but unless a FOSTER or ADOPTER steps up for him tonight, that will never happen. This GOOD BOY will be heartlessly killed tomorrow, unless YOU take assertive action to make sure his life is saved tonight!

10/23/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
10/23/15 11:26 Gnocchi and Orzo are outdoor cats. Their finder has seen them and been feeding them since they were born. They don’t think Orzo is Gnocchi’s mother, but possibly an older sibling. They reported that Orzo retreated from them when they approached. The cats were lured into a crate with food together. Their finder shut the door behind them. Orzo walked into his kennel with a low body and wide eyes. He retreated to the back and crouched tightly in the corner. He allowed me to pet and scan him (-) but was stiff with wide eyes. His face was in the corner of the kennel, but he was looking towards me. He sat still in the back as I took his pictures. He didn’t vocalize.
No Web Memo
10/27/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Orzo looks tense in his cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Orzo began to stress meow in place, crouched position, body held tightly. Reaction to touch: Orzo slowly retreats away from the assessor’s hand then accepts the touch, but seems uncomfortable and attempts to escape the cage. Placement determination: Experience / no child Orzo tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful 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.
