CAPPY – A1034899
*** GONE 05/27/15 *** CAPPY IS A CHUBSTER WHO WANTS A NEW HOME…..CAPPY’S old owner had “NO TIME” for him and apparently no time to tell us about him. Despite that, CAPPY is a friendly guy who likes to be pet but reserves the right not to be picked up. He is growing grumpy at the ACC (he’s been there since May 1st!) and really wants a place of his own again. IF YOU CAN OFFER TO FOSTER OR ADOPT CAPPY, IT WOULD JUST MAKE HIS DAY!! DON’T WAIT, TOMORROW WILL BE TOO LATE……SAVE CAPPY NOW!!

05/26/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Cappy’s behavior has deteriorated slightly in the care center. He remains relaxed and social but has become less tolerant of ongoing interaction and of being picked up. He initially solicits petting and attention, but in response to being picked up or to things being moved around him in in his cage he may hiss or swat. We recommend experienced adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Cappy becomes reactive. We also advise that he may not appreciate being picked up or held, and pick-ups should be done slowly and gently. For Cappy’s comfort we recommend a home without children. Notes: Cappy was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to was seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment he was displaying seemly social behavior, comes to the front of the kennel ,interacts with the Assessor, allows attention, is allows limited handling and some petting.
