BERNIE MAC – A1049572
Gone 9-3-2015 Manhattan
***GONE 09/03/15*** There’s nothing comical ABOUT this BERNIE MAC’ S situation! The 3 year old male was brought into the ACC as a STRAY and he’s not very happy about it. During assessment, he accepted a few strokes but his frightened nature has made it clear that he may need time to warm up to his new home. So he’s been given a EXPNOCHILD rating. That doesn’t mean that once decompressed and used to his new surroundings he won’t be the same. In fact, it’s likely THAT this guy would be your new best friend. Just give BERNIE MAC a chance! Offer to FOSTER or ADOPT him!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Note: Bernie Mac was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He would meow and grumble upon intake, but was tolerant of all handling. He may try to flee, but relaxed when pet on his body a few times. Reaction to assessor: Bernie Mac does not come to the front, but remains neutral inside his cage. Reaction when softly spoken to: Bernie Mac doesn’t give much of a reaction, but his ears tilt slightly sideways. Reaction to cage door opening: Bernie Mac remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Bernie Mac sniffs the assessor’s hand and squeezes his head behind his litter box. He remains immobile for petting and twitches when pet on his back. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Bernie Mac tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. 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.
