STAR – A1039675
6-19-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
**SAFE 06/19/15** STAR is a delightful young girl who totally lives up to her name. Brought in with 4 other cats by someone who said they had “too many pets,” this radiant girl is GOOD with kids, cats, and DOGS! She is a little nervous at the shelter, which is only to be expected. This pretty STAR will light up the life of anyone who agrees to foster or adopt her, and since she boasts an EXPERIENCE rating, she should be a good fit for pretty much anyone who is interested in having a cat. Please don’t let her story end at the hands of a jaded municipal worker who kills pets every single day—advocate fiercely for STAR, tonight!

She is kept indoors and has a medium activity level. The previous owner describes Star as playful, shy, and quiet. Notes: Star at the time of the assessment she was displaying fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Retreats as I started to get closer. I was able to pet her and interact with her in a limited way. I was also able to pick her up and although she was tense no fractious behavior was display. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. Reaction to assessor: does not come to front but remains neutral When spoken quietly: does not come to front but remains neutral Reaction to door cage opening: retreats Reaction to touch: seems indifferent to my presence and touch Try picking cat up: tolerant of this type of handling but tense.
