TIGER – A0979034
Urgent 9-4-2015 Staten Island Rescue: Animalkind Please honor your pledges: http://www.animalkind.info/
**SAFE 09/04/15** SECOND NIGHT ON THE LIST FOR DEAR, SWEET TIGER! “A volunteer writes: Tiger needs a bit of time to warm up, but when he’s ready to meet with his new best friend, he is so sweet. This handsome young tabby is very curious and playing with a simple pipe cleaner brings joy into his life. Would you be the one to bring permanent joy into Tiger’s life by giving him a forever home?” TIGER is an EXPERIENCE-rated, NEUTERED, 2-year-old boy who probably scratched some furniture and then, his former owner retaliated by bringing him to the ACC. This is a great pet who simply needs to live with a foster/adopter who doesn’t expect him to act like a statue of a cat. He did great in a multi-cat home so please, FIND A FOSTER/ADOPTER TO SAVE TIGER TONIGHT!

08/29/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Comes to the front of the cage, soliciting attention. (1) Reaction to being spoken to quietly: Continues soliciting attention. (1) Reaction to cage door opening: Remains soft and relaxed. (1) Reaction to touch: Solicits petting and attention, rubs, purrs. (1) Reaction to being picked up: Calm and tolerant of this type of handling. Notes: Tiger came to the shelter surrendered by an owner who described him as playful and affectionate, and notes that he got along well with children and other cats. At the time of the assessment, Tiger is displaying friendly behavior. He interacts with the assessor and appreciates all handling. Tiger’s previous owner reports that he was soiling outside the litterbox, and that she was unable to keep the house clean due to health reasons. We are unaware of what, if any, modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a different home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litterbox should this behavior continue in a home environment. We also recommend that Tiger be provided with numerous litterboxes throughout the house as he adjusts to his new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as he learns the space and successfully defecates in his main litterbox(es).
