RORY – A1038479
*** GONE 06/07/15 *** SHY RORY IS ONLY 11 MONTHS OLD…..Her owner was of the clueless variety and while deducing that RORY was sometimes not using the litterbox because she was in heat, neglected to get her fixed…..They also decided that RORY and her sister REESE had to go because they had too many cats and managed a feral colony??? Still trying to figure that one out. SO OUR LITTLE GIRL IS ALONE AT THE ACC AND NOW SCHEDULED TO DIE TOMORROW…..PLEASE HELP SAVE RORY (and maybe her sister REESE). CONTACT A NEW HOPE RESCUE AND OFFER TO FOSTER OR ADOPT……All RORY needs is a helping paw!!

06/02/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
Basic Information: Rory is an 11 month old black and white female domestic short haired cat. She came into AC&C with her sister cat Reese after her owner reported they were unable to handle the care of the cats due to having too many animals as well as coordinating a feral colony. Rory was last at the vet in October 2014, and appears to be in good health. Socializing: Rory is known to be a very fearful cat. She runs away and hides from both adults and children. She has never been around dogs but is described to be relaxed and tolerant of other cats, often engaging in rough play. She rarely seeks attention from her owner and is described to never play. Behavior: Recently, Rory has been having litter box accidents. The owner thinks this is due to her going into heat, which appears to be the only time she is going outside of the box. She is mostly spraying during heat, otherwise will use a litterbox without problem. Rory has never bitten a person or another animal. For A New Family to Know Rory is described as a soft, independent, and dignified cat who is often called Oreo in the home. She loves to run, having a medium amount of energy until she has the desire to return to her favorite spot in the home, which is her own cat bed. Rory scratches on a vertical post made of cardboard. She eats both dry and wet food, usually mixed together, and likes Purien Naturals, Kitten Chow, and 9 Lives. Rory shares two litter boxes with other cats, one hooded and one covered, and both boxes using clay litter. Rory does not usually like to be handled, and will struggle in various situations including when put in a carrier, when her nails are trimmed, and when she is picked up and brushed. Rory would do best in a home without children, where she can exercise her independence. Behavior During Intake Rory appeared fearful, with a timid body and whale eyes. She hissed when counslors approached her and was unable to be handled.
