MINDY – A1030359
SAFE*** You know how the ACC website takes credit for finding all kinds of homes, for all kinds of adoptable pets? Yeah, well, MINDY is the face of thousands of other animals who don’t have that happy ending the marketing department likes to brag about. MINDY is 2 years old, she has a sweet AVERAGE rating, she has been at the shelter for 2 weeks, and she’s completely adoptable. Except the ACC couldn’t figure out how to find her a home, so they are planning to kill her tomorrow instead. Please don’t let MINDY die at the shelter—advocate ferociously for her, tonight.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Mindy remains calm, relaxed, and friendly upon approach. When softly spoken to, she looks at the assessor with relaxed eyes. Reaction to cage door opening: Mindy remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Mindy comes to the front, stays in place for petting, begins to purr, and head-butts the assessor’s hand. After a little while, Mindy starts to rub against various objects in her cage. Reaction to toy or novel object: Mindy shows no interest in playing. Reaction to being picked up: Mindy remains calm and allows handling. Note: Mindy was brought into the care center as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. The finder did not have any trouble picking her up and transporting her to the care center. Mindy was also easy to handle during her initial medical exam. Behavior Determination: Average Mindy interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
