HARVARD – A1042670
7-15-2015 Staten Island
***SAFE 07/15/2015*** HARVARD is a victim of bad circumstances. He was hauled into the Staten Island ACC in a trap by someone who stated ‘he has to trap cats by the complex to keep numbers down!’ Poor HARVARD! He has no idea whats happened and is very fearful. The ACC staff haven’t tried to touch him because immediately, any frightened cat in a trap is probably ‘feral’ in their eyes. HARVARD might be, but he also might be an abandoned cat, simply trying to survive. He’s got a great face, and he makes eye contact, something many true ferals won’t do. HARVARD’S trapped status may get him into trouble-he’s a cat who really is at risk because rescues are far less likely to pull a cat no one is willing to work with or foster-and HARVARD’s fear has labeled him NEW HOPE ONLY which means only a rescue can pull him. Take a chance on HARVARD! He’s got a certain sweetness to him, and you might be very surprised at how unferal he is. Say YES and bring HARVARD in from the cold-he needs you!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Harvard came into the care center as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior or his situation in his previous home. He has been difficult to handle and uncomfortable with human interaction since arrival, opting to hide continuously in his cat den. He did not allow any handling during his initial medical examination. Reaction to assessor: Harvard is hiding in his cat den. He cannot be coaxed out. Reaction to cage door opening: Remains in den. Reaction to touch: Harvard is visualized through the cat den window with a tense body, ears flat, pupils dilated. Interaction was ended at this point to avoid further distress. Placement determination: New Hope Only Harvard appears to be undersocialized and has avoided human contact since arrival. We recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can provide positive experiences to help Harvard build trust and confidence around humans, and who can re-evaluate his behavior in a stable home environment.
