GIZMO – A1043477

***SAFE 07/23/15*** SECOND CHANCE FOR THESE TWO FAB FELINES!!PURRFECT PAIR OF TERRIFIC TORTIES WITH GREAT BEHAVIOR RATING NEED NEW FREND! Gizmo and Flower are a dynamic duo of petite spayed one year old torties who were sadly surrendered due to “child conflict” and-or “allergies.” We are not sure really why these beautiful young girls were given up but we do know if we don’t do everything we can to advocate for them tonight, they will become sad ACC stats when tomorrow afternoon rolls around. A volunteer writes of Flowers, “This tortie beauty with such loving eyes comes right to the front of her kitty condo to greet you. Flowers has the sweetest meow, and she definitely is looking for a new best friend! This lovely gal would bring happiness into the forever home of beginner cat parents.” Gizmo is equally as sweet and affectionate. A volunteer writes, “Gizmo is a quiet girl. She seeks out attention, but she’s a bit cautious. This pretty lady would be happiest in the forever home of average cat parents.” These fab felines are barely out of kittenhood and deserve a chance to grow up in a loving new environment. Can you open up your heart and home to this purrfect pair? Please reserve online or contact a NH rescue for help with transportation (available if you live within a few hours of NYC). And don’t forget fostering saves lives so let a rescue know if you can offer temporary safe haven. These two terrific torties need you. Can you be their rescue angel?

07/21/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Gizmo lived previously with adults and with other cats. She is described by her previous owner as playful, but we have limited information on other behaviors in the home. At the time of intake and during her initial medical examination, Gizmo was social and easy to handle. She does not appear to be acclimating well to the shelter environment, though, spending much of her time crouched at the back of the cage. She remains tolerant of handling, but gives some signs of discomfort durign interactions (body tense, ears lowered, dilated pupils). She has not escalated to more serious distance-increasing behaviors, such as hissing or growling. Reaction to assessor: Gizmo is at the back of the cage when approached. Reaction to cage door opening: Pupils dilate further, remains at the back of the cage. Reaction to touch: Gizmo allows petting and handling, but her body is tense and her ears are lowered. She allows a gentle pick up in the cage. Placement determination: Average Gizmo was social and interactive in the early days of her stay. She appears to be a bit stressed by the shelter environment, so we feel that she would do best if placed into a stable home environment quickly. Based on all behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that she is appropriate for adopters with an average amount of experience.
