GILFORD – A1035575
**GONE 05/15/15** Without the support of a New Hope partner, beautiful Gilford will be killed tomorrow. Gilford wants nothing more than to run far, far away from the shelter and her attempts to flee have played out as a New Hope rating. This cat is still a young lady and may never have known the joy of loving arms around her, she may never have lived as the apple of someone’s eye. Gilford deserves a chance! Please share her far and wide, tonight.

05/13/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: Gilford 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 she was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. Gilford is extremely fearful and 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. Reaction to assessor: was hiding when I approach cage (3) When spoken quietly: continues to hide (3) Reaction to door cage opening: tries to flee (3) Reaction to touch: tries to flee ,hisses(4) Try picking cat up: did not attempt to pick the cat up, fractious behavior.
