LUCY – A1040300
6-21-2015 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 06/21/15*** SWEET, SHY MEDIUM-HAIRED BEAUTY, DUMPED FOR “PET HEALTH”, IS PERFECTLY HEALTHY WITH A GREAT BEHAVIOR RATING, BUT THE ACC WILL KILL HER ANYWAY – PLEASE GRANT LUCY A DEATH ROW PARDON!!! Gorgeous plush-velvet ebony girl LUCY, just three years old, was dumped into the ACC’s Death Camp for Kitties supposedly due to “PET HEALTH”, yet this stunning young medium-haired charmer is PERFECTLY HEALTHY! Did I mention that old owners will often LIE to rid themselves of a poor cat who is no longer wanted? That seems to be the case for lovely Lucy, who had ROTTEN owners who didn’t interact or play with her at all. Now poor Lucy will DIE at noon tomorrow, despite the fact that this sweet, shy girl is PERFECTLY HEALTHY and has a good behavior rating! Lucy earned a very good EXPNOCHILD rating for the way she allowed petting, despite her shyness. Please don’t let them murder this excellent cat! Start RIGHT NOW to apply to foster or adopt betrayed sweetheart LUCY! If you can’t save LUCY yourself, please SHARE her sad story and PLEDGE for her rescue!

06/18/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
According to the former owner she is fearful of children and will flee and hide when they are around. She has the same behaviors when around dogs, cats, and other people. Reaction to assessor: Lucy looks tense in her cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Lucy remains crouched down on her cage bedding, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Lucy slowly retreats away from the assessor’s hand, but accepts the stroke. However, she flinches on the touch with ears down and seems uncomfortable with her surroundings. Placement determination: Experience / no child Lucy tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
