PERCY – A1052319
Urgent 9-26-2015 Brooklyn
***GONE 09/26/15***SAD AND BETRAYED FORMER HOUSEPET NEEDS YOU-BE PERCY’S HERO! Percy is a six year old, healthy and spayed scared angel who was dumped by her former family just a few short days ago due to “house soil.” Percy had been with her former family since she was a kitten and is described as affectionate towards adults and tolerant of kids. Percy’s former owner thinks Percy’s litterbox issues are behavioral. It was stated Percy has been to a vet abut we are not sure when and if she was brought recently to address the litterbox matter. Percy has lived with other kitties and was the companion of a five year old autistic child. Most of us could never imagine sharing a home with a precious pet since he or she was a baby and then dumping them at the kill happy shelter where they are frisked, poked and prodded by strangers and are naturally freaked out. Poor Percy is rescue only. Please don’t be put off by her NH rating. Cats shouldn’t die because they are lost, scared, betrayed and honest about how they are feeling. Please advocate for Percy tonight. Let a rescue know if you can help. Please offer this sad and betrayed former housepet a new “leash on life.” Be Percy’s hero!!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Owner Profile: Percy was bought into the care center by previous her owner due to her litter box problems. Percy lived with two adults and an autistic child. The previous owner stated Percy is usually tolerant towards the child but if the child is very active she will swat at him. Percy is affectionate towards the adults in the household. When visitors come around Percy is cautious and will make sure she is seen around the house but keeps distance. Percy lived with another older cat and was respectful and tolerant towards the other cat. Percy behavior is unknown towards dogs. She’s indoors only and activity level is to a medium. The previous owner stated Percy is assertive and affectionate. Notes: Percy’s previous owners report that she was eliminating outside the litterbox for awhile. Percy was seen by a veterinarian and has no known medical issues. We are unaware of what, if any, modifications steps were taken to try and address this behavior in the home, so we cannot be sure what the trigger may have been or if this behavior may continue in a future home. However, we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litterbox should this behavior continue in a home environment. Percy seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment. She was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She is extremely fearful and currently does not tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. Reaction to assessor: hisses, growls at assessor When spoken quietly: hisses, growls at assessor Reaction to door cage opening: become alert, continues to hiss, growls Reaction to touch: swats at me, hisses Try picking cat up: Percy is not tolerant of this type of behavior, hisses swat. Placement Determination: NewHope
