SITKA – A1057090
Urgent 11-16-2015 Manhattan Rescue: Only Maine Coons Rescue Please honor your pledges: http://www.omcrescue.org/
**SAFE 11/16/15** This baby Maine Coon does not deserve the treatment he has received! The Finder,who traps cats/kittens and dumps off at the ACC,trapped SITKA and brought him to the ACC and they wonder why he was hissing! The 5 month old is likely scared out of his mind and was better off living in the woods! To make it even harder for SITKA,they gave him a RESCUE ONLY rating because of his natural defense to fear! PLEASE, contact a NEW HOPE RESCUE and offer to FOSTER or ADOPT this kitten. He’s so cute its that it’s not even funny..but saving his life sure could bring a smile to his sweet face!

Reaction to touch: Sitka does not allow the stroke, hisses, spits, and yowls at the assessor’s hand. Placement determination: NH ONLY Sitka 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.
