***SAFE 06/24/15*** RARE GINGER GIRL KITTEN CHARMER HAS A SWEET VOLUNTEER PLEA AND A GREAT BEHAVIOR RATING, BUT THE ACC WILL KILL HER ANYWAY – PLEASE GRANT HELEN A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Rare ginger and white kitten HELEN, just 5 months old, arrived at the kill-happy ACC as a STRAY waif, along with her friends & littermates The H Kittens Group # (K15-017542: HECKTOR – A1039283, HILDA – A1039284, HARIETTE – A1039285, HARRY – A1039286, HONDA – A1039287), but only Helen finds herself on the dreaded kill list tonight. Helen soon caught the eye of an ACC volunteer, who lovingly writes: “Helen is a young miss who is so cute, but very shy. To overcome her shyness, Helen would love to live in the forever home of experienced cat parents who will play with her, love her and protect her. Are you the one who will make Helen happy? Helen hopes so!” Even in the scary shelter, Helen earned a very good EXPERIENCE behavior rating. This sweet kitten arrived with an incomplete rectal prolapse, which can be easily remedied, yet the heartless ACC prefers to KILL rather than CURE, despite the fact that they say Helen has a GOOD PROGNOSIS! Please don’t let them murder this rare orange baby! Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster adorable and RARE ginger kitten HELEN! If you can’t save HELEN yourself, please SHARE her sad story and PLEDGE for her rescue!

06/14/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Is at the back of the cage when I approach, neutral. (2) Reaction to being spoken to quietly: Does not come to the front but looks at me. (2) Reaction to cage door opening: Remains motionless. (2) Reaction to touch: Moves to avoid being touched, flinches, but allows petting, not fractious. (3) Reaction to being picked up: Tolerant of this type of handling, but tense. Notes: Helen came to the shelter as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment. At the time of the assessment, Helen is displaying fearful behavior. She does not interact with the assessor and avoids handling, but allows it. Helen is exhibiting behavior suited for an experienced cat parent who can allow her ample adjustment time to a new home.
