*** GONE 06/22/15 *** SENIOR NALA HAS A VERY STRANGE TALE TO TELL….First, is she 10 or 15?? Second, she lived in one household her entire life and wasn’t “receptive” to the family….10 years is a long time to not be “receptive” AND after 10 years the family wants to find her a better home??? Something does not add up here. NALA is already SPAYED and certainly needs a home that is going to give her time and patience. And one that will get a vet exam to see if there are any senior changes going on…..WE DON’T KNOW WHAT NALA’S FORMER SITUATION WAS BUT WE KNOW HER CURRENT SITUATION IS DIRE…..PLEASE HELP NALA FIND A HAPPY HOME BY CONTACTING A NEW HOPE RESCUE & OFFERING TO FOSTER OR ADOPT!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Owner Profile: Nala was bought into the care center by her previous owner due to behavior reasons. Nala lived two adults and 1 baby. She also lived with one cat. Nala is not receptive to other cat in the house. She has not been exposed to dogs so her behavior towards them remains unknown . Nala is reported to not be receptive to the family in the house. Notes: Nala seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment she was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She attempts to strike and currently does not tolerate much petting. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time Reaction to assessor: swats, strikes, at me When spoken quietly: swats, strikes, at me Reaction to door cage opening: retreats Reaction to touch: allowed very limited petting before swating and striking Try picking cat up: did not attempt Placement Determination: NewHope
