PINKY – A1056697
Urgent 11-10-2015 Brooklyn
*GONE 11/10/15** NEW HOPE rescue is needed for PINKY, a neutered 4-year-old boy who slept in bed with his former owner, and had been with her since he was a tiny kitten. She brought him to the shelter because he had scratched her a couple of times….and of course, the pet ALWAYS gets the blame. What had she done to provoke such an uncharacteristic response from him? PINKY has no idea why he has been abandoned by the person he loves, and the shelter actually gave him a nice EXPNOCHILD rating on his behavioral evaluation. With those surrender notes, though, this pretty boy has been given NEW HOPE ONLY status and must be pulled to safety by a New Hope rescue partner, tonight.

11/05/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Pinky is described as playful, shy, talkative and affectionate. Upon intake, Pinky was not handled or collard and was photographed in the carrier. Pinky reported to have a history of scratching furniture, and should go to a home that can safely cat-proof a couch in the home. We advise future adopters to make sure to provide mentally and physically stimulating toys to keep Pinky occupied when left alone. Reaction to assessor: Pinky makes eye contact with the assessor but doesn’t come forward. Reaction when softly spoken to: Pinky starts licking his lip and breathing heavily. Reaction to cage door opening: Pinky remains motionless. Reaction to touch: tolerates petting but is very tense. His ears flatten and he slowly turns his head away. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Pinky tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may have some behavioral issues that will need to be addressed in the 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.
