PAYTON – A1060370
Urgent 12-16-2015 Manhattan
**SAFE 12/16/15** PAYTON got along so well with the Yorkshire terrier in her previous home, they used to SLEEP together, and she’s also reported as being good with kids! But when her former owner decided to move into a new place, it was only PAYTON who found herself abandoned at the killing machine of the ACC. PAYTON is already spayed and she’s 6 years old, and her owner surrender notes read like a dream! It’s easy to imagine her transitioning nicely into a new home and giving her new people tons of unconditional love…but in order for that to happen, someone needs to step up and FOSTER or ADOPT her, tonight! They start the killing once the clock chimes in the noon hour, and there’s no telling who that first, unlucky cat will be….. Make sure that help is found for PAYTON tonight, by advocating everywhere for her RIGHT AWAY!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Payton is described as affectionate and friendly. She lived in a home with adults and has interacted with a two year old child. Payton enjoys being petted by her family. She lived with a Yorkshire terrier and was affectionate with the dog. She would chase him around and sleep alongside him. She likes the company of people. She will sit on top of her owner’s lap and rub against her owner’s legs for attention. When there are visitors in the home, Payton will approach and begin meowing until she is petted. Reaction to assessor: Payton looks neutral in her cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Payton remains sitting upright by the front of the cage, soliciting attention. Reaction to touch: Payton head-butts the assessor’s hand and appreciates petting on the head and body. However, she becomes agitated with the touch then mildly nips and hisses while she solicits more attentiion. Reaction to Being Picked up: Allows the pickup and remains calm. Placement determination: Experience / no child Initially Payton solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to mildly nip and hiss at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Payton becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
