FRENCH TWIST – A1035459
***SAFE 05/10/15*** FRENCH TWIST’s story is strange and twisted for such a little girl. When she was intaked, no one seems to have had problems handling her, but then during her evaluation and medical, she becomes upset and won’t allow handling. Why? Well, it could be that FRENCH TWIST who was brought in a carrier but is listed as a ‘stray’ became afraid of the smell of dogs and other animals at ACC. She’s only two years old and hardly anyone has given this girl a chance to get used to them or to calm down. FRENCH TWIST is listed as NEW HOPE only and really needs a friend to help her get out of ACC alive-someone who will see past the ‘fractious’ and ‘feral’ cat they list her as. She looks very much from this poor picture, as though she might either be a pur Abyssinian or have some in her somewhere-the slanted eyes, the sandy like coat. Won’t you drop fear by the wayside and take a chance on FRENCH TWIST and contact a rescue to offer to foster this little lady? Please save her life-she’s in need of someone to believe in her and to accept her for who she is. SAVE FRENCH TWIST NOW!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: French Twist 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. She seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment French Twist was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to tries to bite and is extremely fearful. She currently does not tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
