LINUS – A1045916
***SAFE 08/07/15*** ‘WHEN IN THE HOME, LINUS FOLLOWS YOU AROUND SEEKING ATTENTION.” LINUS was turned in because his owner was moving-and now this gentle cat, who belonged to his owner since he was 4 months old is facing death tomorrow. LINUS is a lovely boy, the kind of cat that would be an easy foster. He has no idea what has happened to him, where his person is, or why he is in this very frightening scary place. LINUS needs you very much-and if ever a cat did nothing to deserve this fate, it would be him. LINUS is the kind of cat who really understands loyalty-sadly, his trust has been betrayed. He’s been petted, but it’s obvious that he’s confused-‘Who are these people?’ he is asking himself. ‘Where is my person? When do I go home?’ Will you help this sweet boy find his new future? He just has til 12 noon to do it!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to Assessor: Linus was calm and relaxed upon approach. He looks at the assessor when softly spoken to, but then turns away and closes his eyes. Reaction to cage door opening: Linus becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Linus was hesitant of touch, but lowers his head and closes his eyes while the assessor pets him. He twitches when touched on his body, lip licks, and shifts away slightly to try and avoid interaction. As per previous owner, Linus has never been around children or dogs, but has lived with other cats. He got along great with the other cats, and was very respectful towards them. He was described as affectionate and talkative, with a low activity level. He is a cat that prefers affection over playing. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Kaisy tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
