GOO GOO DOLL – A1045695
8-12-2015 Staten Island Rescue: All Sentient Beings Please honor your pledges: http://animalloversnetwork.org/
*SAFE* 08/12/15 – Goo Goo Doll came to us possibly hit by a car but was doing well. She was very sweet upon entering the shelter and seems to be getting a bit stressed. She would do best in a less stressful environment.
A volunteer writes: This pretty girl should be the official greeter at ACC! She loves to welcome with her lovely meow, and with her striking tabby coat, she is certainly the “cat’s meow”! Playful, affectionate and outgoing are just some words to describe GooGoo Doll. Do you have room in your heart and home for this real life living doll?

Goo Goo Doll came into the care center as an injured stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. In spite of her injury she was social and easy to handle at the time of intake and during her initial medical exam. She does not appear to be acclimating well to the shelter environment, though, as she warns against interaction at the time of her behavior evaluation.
Reaction to assessor: Goo Goo Doll is sitting in her litterbox when the assessor approaches. She stares, eyes wide, ears partly lowered, dilated pupils, yowling.
Reaction to cage door opening: Continues the behavior.
Reaction to touch: Due to the warning signals given, touch was not attempted.
Placement determination: Experienced home without children
Goo Goo Doll’s behavior has changed considerably since her arrival at the care center. She has shown highly social and interactive behavior, but due to our lack of known history and her current intolerance of handling, we recommend experienced cat parents and a home without children.
