FINNIGAN – A1052639
Gone 10-8-2015 Brooklyn
***GONE 10/08/15*** FINNIGANS ‘ age seems to be a hard subject to tackle since he’s listed as 2 and 4 years old. But as far as FINNIGAN is concerned, he might as well be 4 since he’s had to grow up quick after being placed in the ACC because his owner died. He’s scared in the shelter,though he did allow brief petting but backed away from any further interaction. PLEASE, offer to FOSTER or ADOPT this ADORABLE guy! He’s rated EXPNOCHILD for now but with some decompression and love from you,he should be a sweet kitty AGAIN in no time!

10/07/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Finnigan does not come to the front but remains neutral by the back. Reaction when softly spoken to: Finnigan looks at the assessor and blinks. Reaction to cage door opening: Finnigan becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Finnigan retreats from the assessor’s hand and hisses. He allows brief petting, but would back away and avoid interaction. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Finnigan is becoming less tolerant to touch during his stay in the care center. He will tolerate attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed 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 who will allow him time to warm up at his own pace. Date: 09/30/15 Finnigan was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment he was displaying shy behavior, did not come to the front of the kennel but interacts with the Assessor, appreciates attention, and tolerates all petting. Finnigan is displaying behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents. Reaction to assessor: Finnigan does not come to front but looks at assessor When spoken quietly: Finnigan does not come to front but looks at assessor Reaction to door cage opening: Finnigan remains neutral Reaction to touch: Finnigan allows petting and attention with a slow approach Try picking cat up: Finnigan is tolerant of this type of handling but becomes tense Placement Determination: Average
