TOM SR – A1060731
Urgent 12-24-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: HVARS Please honor your pledges: http://www.hvars.org/
**SAFE 12/24/15** SECOND CHANCE for TOM SR! HE IS PERFECTLY HEALTHY BUT THE ACC HAS LISTED HIM TO DIE ANYWAY – HE NEEDS A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE TONIGHT! TOM SR. is a very handsome boy who is about 3 years old. He was brought into the shelter as a stray, and is clearly not happy there. On his assessment he did allow some petting after being spoken to softly, and this shows that TOM SR is probably just a scared lost pet who will be just fine once out of the shelter environment. But the ACC has to clean house before the holidays so they gave him an EXPNOCHILD rating and fast tracked him to tonight’s euth list. TOM SR is just wanting a home and someone to love him. CAN YOU SAVE TOM SR TONIGHT? BE HIS HERO AND MAKE HIS STORY A HAPPY ONE.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tom Sr. was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was growling and hissing every time he was approached by a counselor. He was very nervous and became defensive with handling. The enrichment facilitator reports that he has a tense body and is very alert during his stay in the care center. Reaction to assessor: Tom Sr. was calm and relaxed upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Tom Sr. focuses on the assessor and looks very tense. Reaction to cage door opening: Tom Sr. becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Tom Sr. was hesitant of touch and shifts away slightly, but pauses to sniff the assessor’s hand. He allows petting, but crouches out and lip licks. Placement Determination: Experience No Child Tom Sr. tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. 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.
