OPAL – A1058332
Safe 11-24-2015 Brooklyn Rescue: HVARS Please honor your pledges: http://www.hvars.org/
**SAFE 11/24/15** A good Samaritan thought they were doing the right thing for OPAL but were they sadly mistaken. Her notes states: ” Opal is a 5month old calico female kitten that came in as a stray. Finder stated that he spotted the cat yesterday and waited to see if she had an owner since there was a bell around her neck. Today, when he saw she was still there, he decided to bring her in.” OPAL is afraid of her surroundings and who can honestly blame her. Please be her hero tonight. She will be killed tomorrow without your help.

11/23/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Opal was calm and relaxed upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Opal’s tail starts to flicker by the end and she whines softly. Reaction to cage door opening: Opal becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Opal focuses on the assessor’s hand and starts to growl. She hisses and shifts away from touch when petting was attempted. When attempting to pet her again, she lifts her paw to prepare to swat and growls louder. Placement Determination: New Hope Only Opal is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She appears to be deteriorating in the care center and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. Date: 11/21/15 Reaction to assessor: Opal does not come to front but looks at you calm and relaxed When spoken quietly: Opal does not come to front but looks at you calm and relaxed Reaction to door cage opening: Opal remains soft and relaxed Reaction to touch: Opal allows petting and attention Try picking cat up: Opal is tolerant of this type of handling. Behavior Determination: Average Opal was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment she was displaying calm behavior, did not come to the front of the kennel but interacts with the Assessor, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Opal is displaying behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
