Then made the HORRIBLE mistake of bringing her to the ACC! Now,because this little girl is frightened she needs an EXPERIENCED foster or adopter.

08/15/15 13:05 Merlotte A1047980 is an est 3-4month old female kitten whom was found on a street in the Bronx a week ago. The finder was attempting to socialize her better before bringing her in but is no longer able to keep her. The finder stated Merlotte got along well with the other cats in the home but doesn’t use the litter box too often and has accidents outside the box almost daily. She eats wet and dry Friskies cat food. Merlotte slept under the bed or sofa. During intake Merlotte appeared shy/nervous but didn’t resist being handled. She allowed to be scanned (-), collared. Due to her attempting to flee & hissing, her pictures were taken inside the kennel due to these behaviors.

08/18/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Merlotte became alert and focuses on the assessor upon approach. She hisses and starts to lip lick when softly spoken to. Reaction to cage door opening: Merlotte becomes stiff and alert, and continues to hiss. Reaction to touch: Merlotte was hesitant of touch and continues to hiss. She remains immobile as the assessor pets her, but she seems wary of the assessor’s hand. She slowly warms up, closes her eyes, and begins to purr, but is cautious every time the assessor makes a sudden movement. Reaction to being picked up: Merlotte allows handling, but is stiff and alert. Behavior Determination: Experience Merlotte tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
