SPIKE – A1049821
Urgent 9-9-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 09/09/15***Poor SPIKE isn’t happy to be in a small cage at the shelter. And who can blame him? His owner is in the hospital and now SPIKE’s life in on the line! SPIKE is an adorable 7 year old male kitty with a gorgeous white coat with black spots. He’s pretty scared right now but an experienced cat home with no children would be great for him. He’s used to a home and he’d come out of his shell and make a loyal cat-friend. But time is running short to save this cutie’s life. Please be SPIKE’s kitty angel and foster or adopt him today!!!

09/03/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Spike looks tense in his cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Spike remains hiding in his cat den, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Spike accepts the stroke, but stiffens up in place and shows no interest on the touch. Placement determination: Experience / no child Spike tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
