JUMPER – A1054050
Gone 10-12-2015 Brooklyn
***GONE 10/12/15*** 13-YEAR-OLD GINGER SENIOR, DUMPED DUE TO PERSONAL PROBLEMS, WAS FRIENDLY AND AFFECTIONATE AT HOME, BUT NOW WILL DIE DUE TO HIS FEAR, DESPITE THE FACT THAT HE’S PERFECTLY HEALTHY – PLEASE GRANT JUMPER A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Thirteen-year-old ginger tabby senior JUMPER was BETRAYED by his old owner, who dumped this “AFFECTIONATE and FRIENDLY” boy into the ACC’s Death Camp for Kitties due to PERSONAL PROBLEMS. At home, Jumper was PURRfect: “He is affectionate and friendly. Jumper has been socialized with adults and he is relaxed, respectful and tolerant when he is around them. He can be shy when initially encountering a new person but will eventually interact with them in a gentle and well behaved manner. He is an indoor cat who has a low activity level. He is described as being playful, confident, shy, mellow, friendly, assertive, aloof, affectionate, quiet, and independent. He likes to play with strings, balls, stuffed toys, and catnip toys as well as engaging in chasing games. Jumper will follow his owner around the house and he will stay in the same room as them. He will sleep on the bed at night.” But poor Jumper is TERRIFIED at the scary shelter, so the ACC has WRITTEN HIM OFF as a New Hope Only behavior problem NOT WORTH SAVING, despite the fact that Jumper is PERFECTLY HEALTHY! The ACC will MURDER this dear eldercat tomorrow at noon, unless YOU step up to save him. Please start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt betrayed senior JUMPER from the approved New Hope rescue groups! If you can’t save JUMPER yourself, please SHARE his sad story and PLEDGE for his rescue!

10/11/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: hisses, growls at me (3) When spoken quietly: hisses, growls at me (3) Reaction to door cage opening: become stiff, alert, continues to hiss (3) Reaction to touch: chrges, swats at me (4) Reaction to toy or novel object: hisses, swats (4) Try picking cat up: did not trying to pick Jumper up, he was displaying fractious behavior. Notes: Jumper was brought to the care center by his previous owner; during the intake he displayed good behavior at first. As they attempted to collar him he started to hiss and did not allow the admission counselor to do so. After a couple of days here, at the time of the assessment Jumper’s behavior has worsened he stays at the back of the kennel and as soon as you approach his kennel he becomes uncomfortable. Stand up, starts to growl, hiss, pupils dilated ears flattened. I try to call him by his name using soft voices but he continued to hiss and growl. Ones I made an attempt to get closer he charged at me and try to keep me away by swatting. Although his owners profile describes a good and well behave cat at home; (please see owners profile info) Jumper is not thriving here at the care center. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
