THELMA – A1031267
**PERFECTLY HEALTHY THELMA IS A 6 MONTH OLD KITTEN WHO WILL DIE FOR HER FEAR AT THE ACC UNLESS YOU CAN GIVE HER A DEATH ROW PARDON TONIGHT!** THELMA was being fed by someone who decided that he felt so bad for this cat that he just had to take her to the kill happy shelter. She also came in with another cat named Louise who is not listed tonight. Now this 6 month old kitten is terrified, and trying to run away, and got slapped with a NEW HOPE rating for her fear. THELMA is a very pretty girl, and will do just fine once out of this scary shelter. That is, if you can pull her to safety before the NOON deadline Sunday. THELMA NEEDS YOU TONIGHT TO PULL HER TO SAFETY BY CONTACTING A RESCUE NOW – SHE IS ONLY A KITTEN WHO IS AFRAID AND WITH PATIENCE AND LOVE WILL BE A GREAT LOVING CAT. GIVE HER THAT CHANCE TONIGHT!

03/28/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. She seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment Thelma was displaying behaviors that prevent placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She tries to flee and is extremely fearful . She currently does not tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. Reaction to assessor: hides in den (3) When spoken quietly: hides in den(3) Reaction to door cage opening: Stays in den (3) Reaction to touch: growls,swats at me (4) Reaction to toy or novel object: hisses, swats (4) Try picking cat up: not tolerant of this type of behavior, hisses swat.
