TEDDY – A1038335
**GONE 06/15/15** Teddy is a 7-year-old family pet whose former owners did him absolutely no favors at all when they left him in their apartment, all by his lonesome. This poor guy had NO idea where everyone had gone, and who knows how long he sat in that empty husk? By the time someone found him, gentle Teddy was rattled enough to act out, although he did calm down and become friendly once he was offered some delicious, delicious food. Teddy is actually a very nice gent, but he does need a rescue group to save his life on account of that one incident with his finder. Please pledge toward his care, share his sad story, and find a foster/adopter to work with a rescue group to save his life, tonight!

06/10/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Teddy was at the front, reaching out with his paws. When softly spoken to, he meows softly and rubs his cheeks against the cage door. Reaction to cage door opening: Teddy remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Teddy head-butts the assessor’s hand vigorously, twirls around to solicit attention, and begins to purr. Reaction to being picked up: Teddy remains calm and allows handling. Note: Teddy was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. The finder reports that he was very fearful with a tense body, and was shy with petting and handling. Behavior Determination: Experience (No Young Children) Teddy interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Although he is exhibiting Beginner behaviors, due to an incident with the finder we recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents who are confident in reading feline body language when he is fearful. We advise that any future home with children conduct a thorough interaction.
