SIENA – A1050066
Urgent 9-9-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 09/09/15*** SECOND CHANCE TO SAVE SIENA!! Once upon a time, in the Unniversity Heights section of NY, there lived a group of 30 cats in an open area-until, that is, the company that owned the area hired a PEST CONTROL COMPANY TO REMOVE THE PESTS! THATS RIGHT-SIENA was considered one of 30 pests. The company didn’t ask anyone to TNR the cats, but to ‘take away the pests’. Now, SIENA, who has no idea why this is happening, who has probably lived there his whole 4 years, is trapped as a PEST and dragged into ACC where no one is willing to try to help him or socialize him, but instead just to kill him. Is that fair? No-no-it’s not. SIENA is a frightened cat, and cats when cornered and not understanding whats happening-when they have lived outside-are either fight or flight. SIENA has tried to get away and fight back against ACC. So you might ask yourself why you would help a cat like SIENA-but I can tell you from experience that ‘feral’ is a term used very loosely and SIENA can socialize. He’d be fine with other cats and with time and patience SIENA could come to be like any cat in from the cold-but that won’t happen at ACC. SIENA will DIE WITHOUT HELP-UNLESS YOU HELP HIM!!!! He’s on a large list tonight of 42 cats, and he’s black and labeled ‘RESCUE ONLY’. IF you have a heart, and can see past what he’s been labeled-a ‘FERAL PEST’ save his life…he deserves it as all cats do!

09/05/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Siena looks tense in his cage when approached by the asssessor. Reaction to door opening: Siena remains crouched down on his cage bedding, alert with pupils fully dilated. Reaction to touch: Siena avoids contact, hisses, and strikes at the assessor’s hand. Placement determination: NH ONLY Siena is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. He is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
