WASABI – A1050655
Urgent 9-12-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 09/12/15*** WASABI WAS FOUND ON THE STREET AND TAKEN TO THE SHELTER – NOW THIS PERFECTLY HEALTHY BOY WILL DIE FOR HIS FEAR! How often do we hear that people see a cat, grab him and whisk him away to the kill happy shelter? ALL TOO OFTEN!! WASABI was minding his business but because he was on the street, someone felt compelled to put him in a carrier and take him to MACC where the poor cat is terrified and was punished with a NEW HOPE rating. How can you help this handsome tabby? FOSTERING OR ADOPTING will save his life. The ACC knows how stressful their shelter is yet they continue to punish perfectly wonderful pets who freak out at being held in captivity in small cages with people poking at them. Can you blame them? GIVE WASABI A MUCH DESERVED DEATH ROW PARDON AND CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO PULL HIM TO SAFETY.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Note: Wasabi was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. The finder was able to place him into a cat carrier and bring him to the care center. He tense upon intake, retreats from extended hand, and would hiss and growl. He was very fearful during his initial medical exam. Reaction to assessor: Wasabi has a cage cover due to his high level of stress when he first came in. He becomes alert when the assessor lifts the cover and hisses. Reaction when softly spoken to: Wasabi starts to growl and focuses on the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Wasabi hisses and retreats to the back. Reaction to touch: Wasabi does not allow touch; he swats at the assessor’s hand. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Wasabi is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat, he is extremely fearful in the shelter environment, and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
