ZOE – A1060439
Urgent 12-19-2015 Staten Island Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 12/19/15*** TINY 10 WEEK OLD KITTEN ZOE IS RESCUE ONLY! ZOE is only a baby. She was found as a ‘stray’ and is frightened to death just like any small baby would be without mom. The assessor was able to handle ZOE with patience, and this is a little girl that with some love and patience and time, will be a love-but black kittens are ‘invisible’ and ZOE needs someone to work with a rescue to foster her-or better yet, say ‘you’ll be home for Christmas-you can count on me’. Can ZOE count on you to save her life?

12/15/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Zoe came to the shelter as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment. Upon intake, Zoe was nervous but allowed handling. Reaction to assessor: Zoe is hiding, lying low in the back of her cage. Reaction when softly spoken to: Zoe looks at the assessor with wide eyes, alert. Reaction to cage door opening: Zoe shifts her paws further underneath her. Reaction to touch: Zoe flinches, but tolerates petting. Reaction to being picked up: Zoe is not tolerant of this type of handling and attempts to flee. Placement Determination: Experience No Child Zoe avoids interaction with the assessor and tolerates some handling. Zoe is exhibiting behavior suited to experienced cat parents with no children in the home who can help her adjust slowly to a calm home environment.
