UNIVERSITY – A1038810
***GONE 06/10/15*** SENIOR BOY UNIVERSITY FOUND HIS WAY INTO THE ACC AS A STRAY AND SADLY TESTED POSITIVE FOR FIV – NOW THEY ARE PLANNING TO END HIS LIFE AT NOON!! UNIVERSITY sounds like a smart cat – and he is – because he knows that the shelter is not a good place to be. UNIVERSITY was brought in as a stray without any background information. He is not happy and very afraid and was slapped with the New Hope rating. Sadly he tested positive for FIV, something which is NOT a death sentence – but the ACC decided that it was. UNIVERSITY may be a lost or abandoned senior, and he is not happy about being caged in the shelter. He was hiding in the back of his cage and this shows his fear not aggression. New hope ratings measure fear IN THE SHELTER and not in a home situation. IF YOU CAN HELP UNIVERSITY LIVE AND HAVE A HAPPY ENDING TO HIS STORY, PLEASE CONTACT A RESCUE GROUP NOW TO PULL HIM TO SAFETY.

06/09/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: University was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. He seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment he was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to flee and is extremely fearful and 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: was hiding when I approach cage When spoken quietly: continues to hide Reaction to door cage opening: retreats Reaction to touch: tries to flee Try picking cat up: not tolerant of this type of handling, very afraid, hisses and tries to flee. Placement Determination: NewHope
