GINGER – A1053718
Gone 10-17-2015 Brooklyn
***GONE 10/17/15*** Poor GINGER was DUMPED by her previous owner citing “behavior issues”. OK. First issue…claws on furniture. That’s why there are scratching posts…Second issue..urinates outside the box, yet has admitted he didn’t change the litter box like he should, DIDN’T bring her to a VET,as it could be a UTI AND she’s NOT SPAYED! Which is a HUGE reason for that “BEHAVIOR “! Now, this 8 year old is rated RESCUE ONLY because she’s scared and doesn’t like being at the ACC! Who can blame her? PLEASE, contact a NEW HOPE RESCUE and offer to FOSTER or ADOPT sweet GINGER! Her previous owner didn’t care at ALL…Please, show her that you do!

10/13/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Ginger was described as independent, mellow and playful. Ginger’s previous owners report that she was urinating outside the litterbox for almost a year. We are unaware of what, if any, modifications steps were taken to try and address this behavior in the home, so we cannot be sure what the trigger may have been or if this behavior may continue in a future home. However, we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litterbox should this behavior continue in a home environment Reaction to assessor: Ginger started to hiss at the assessor. Her ears were flat and body arched. Reaction when softly spoken to: Ginger slowly inches to the back of the kennel. Reaction to cage door opening: Ginger remains neutral. Reaction to touch: Ginger sniffs the assessor’s hand then slowly comes forward. She starts to solicit attention and rolls over allowing petting. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Ginger tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Ginger may have some behavioral issues that will need to be addressed in the 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.
