SAFE 04/09/15 – ALTURO – A1031873 – MANHATTAN, NY
Handsome 2-year old boy ALTURO was surrendered to NYC animal control and is scared in the loud and chaotic shelter environment. He is a healthy boy at 9.0 pounds and deserves your love and affection. His former owners dumped him when they were evicted and he is stressed in the shelter. He would do best in a calm and quiet home with no small children where he can learn to trust again. Please give ALTURO the life he deserves! Apply to adopt or foster ALTURO immediately as he does not have much time left! If you cannot adopt, please share his picture and story in the hopes that someone can save his life- he deserves better than to be dumped by humans that he trusted! PLEASE help ALTURO to love again!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Alturo looks tense in his cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Alturo remains hiding in his cat den, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Alturo allows the stroke, but shows no interest on the touch. While he was in place, his eyes began to wander then attempts to escape his cage. Placement determination: Experience / no child Alturo 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.
