ACE – A1036134
***GONE – 06/24/15*** A volunteer writes: Shy and quiet yet sweet as honey to a bumblebee. Ace is a gentle guy who stays behind his closed door and gazes out watching and waiting. Who will have time for me he ponders. He appears to be happy as a clam in a shell in his little condo world. Will you be the forever family that can offer him a happy home?

He said that he posted a notice about a missing cat and he said he waited 3 days but no one has claimed him. During intake, Ace was very shy. He allowed to be scanned and transferred into a kennel. He retreated to the back of the kennel but he allowed to be pet and remained calm. We were able to collar him and to photograph.

06/21/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Ace was calm and relaxed upon approach. When softly spoken to, he tries to sniff the assessor and stretches his front legs. Reaction to cage door opening: Ace remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Ace remains in place and allows brief touch, but stiffens up as he focuses on the hand. He swats at it multiple times and retreats to the back. Note: Ace was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was very shy during intake, but allowed handling. He has become more relaxed in the care center environment, but has become less tolerant of touch and may become defensive during interactions. Behavior Determination: NH ONLY Ace 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, bite, 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. ____________________________________________________________________________________ Date: 05/16/15 Reaction to assessor: Ace looks tense in his cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Ace remains lying down on his cage bedding, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Ace accepts the stroke, but remains immobile in place. He shows no interest on the touch however, he seems to enjoy chin rubs. Placement determination: Experience / no child Ace tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
