JERRY – A1038791
***SAFE 06/18/15*** DOG LOVING SIAMESE JERRY DUMPED FOR NO TIME – BUT OWNER STILL HAS THE DOG!! How unfair is this. JERRY is a 5 year old siamese that lived with this family since kittenhood. He would go outside to play with a visiting cat but his real love was the family poodle. The owner stated that he loved to play with the dog, even snuggling and grooming each other!!!! JERRY would always join in when there was playtime with the dog. He loved to play and used his scratching post as well. Funny but dogs have to be walked and cat’s don’t, yet this owner said he had no time for his loving cat.Funny because later on we read that JERRY was spraying and HE IS NOT NEUTERED but the OWNER CLAIMS HE HAD NO IDEA WHY HE DID THAT??? REALLY??? THIS IS CAT BEHAVIOR 101. JERRY was friendly at intake and allowed handling. Once JERRY realized that his owner was not coming back for him, he changed and became afraid. Gee what a surprise. When the assessor came with his big fake hand JERRY swatted and hissed and got slapped with a NEW HOPE rating. THIS IS A FAMILY PET WHO ONLY WANTS TO BE LOVED AND PLAYED WITH. HE MISSES HIS DOGGIE FRIEND TOO AND HAS BEEN HEARTLESSLY ABANDONED. WOULDN’T YOU BE UPSET???/ GET JERRY A ONE WAY TICKET TO FREEDOM TONIGHT BY CONTACTING A RESCUE TO PULL HIM TO SAFETY!!!!

He would also use his uncovered litter box, but also spray arond the home. The previous owner stated his vet said that it is bcause he is marking his territoy from the dog. Notes: Jerry seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment he was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He is extremely fearful and currently does not tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. Reaction to assessor: swats, strikes, charges at me When spoken quietly: swats, strikes, charges at me Reaction to door cage opening: charges at me Reaction to touch: does not allow petting at all Try picking cat up: does not allows petting or handling at all. Placement Determination: NewHope
