JC – A1057052
Gone 11-10-2015 Brooklyn
***GONE 11/10/15***HANDSOME ORANGE AND WHITE BOY NEEDS RESCUE ANGEL! Three year old JC is a cat who feels threatened and vulnerable in the ACC environment, and you know what? JC has every right to feel that way, because “threatened” and “vulnerable” are two words that apply to him in spades. That doesn’t mean those words will continue once JC gets into a relaxed home setting. If you are planning to bring a new cat home, lock it in a live trap and subject it to an abusive environment 24/7, then this is not the cat for you. There IS no animal that would be “right” for such treatment. If you want to bring home a new cat, allow for some decompression time, and then build up a mutually loving relationship, JC could be your man. Please do everything possible to save this cat’s life tonight. JC deserves the chance for a happy new life. Please make that possible by letting a rescue know you can foster or adopt this handsome boy. JC only has tonight. We are his only hope. Don’t let him down.

I covered him with a blanket to go back to cat exam.

11/08/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
JC was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. Reaction to assessor: JC makes eye contact with the assessor. His ears are flat and he has an arched back. Reaction when softly spoken to: JC low growls and licks his lip. His eyes are focused on the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: JC remains motionless and tense. Reaction to touch: JC inches away from contact and turns his head away. He hisses and swats when close. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only JC is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
