**SAFE 09/15/15** Seven-year-old boys can be a bit overwhelming for pets, and Pink Foot is about to pay for that fact with her life. This attractive spayed lady is a youngster herself and probably was not raised with clear guidelines of proper behavior. Her shelter notes reflect that she was gifted to the family when the child was even younger, and kiddos raising kittens is not necessarily a recipe for success. PINK FOOT has no idea why she has been plunged into the ACC nightmare and she won’t understand why they are pinning her to that stainless steel table tomorrow. She carries an EXPNOCHILD rating and is in dire need of a foster or adopter, tonight!

09/14/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per the previous owner, Pink Foot has lived with two adults and a 7 year old boy. She plays rough with the boy and will often jump on his leg when he walks by. She also jumps on his legs and arms when he is watching TV without being provoked. She has not been exposed to other cats or dogs, so her behavior around them is unknown. She struggles when held and if not put down she will bite. She is litter box trained and does not have accidents outside the box. She has been kept indoors and has a high activity level. Reaction to Assessor: Pink Foot was growling upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Pink Foot’s ears tilt slightly sideways and she continues to growl. Reaction to cage door opening: Pink Foot remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Pink Foot sniffs the assessor’s hand, but allows gentle touch on her head and nips gently. She seems to appreciate petting; she rubs her cheeks onto the assessor’s hand, and lightly head-butts, but she continues to growl. Placement Determination: Experience No Child Pink Foot tolerates petting but may be assertively demanding of attention. After a few soft passes over the body she begins to growl. 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 Pink Foot becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention. 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.
