***SAFE 09/27/15***BEAUTIFUL AND SWEET GINGERBREAD GAL NEEDS NEW FRIEND! Sad Sigh! Ruby is a one year old, healthy spayed and sweet girl who was dumped at the shelter back on 9/17 with several of her feline friends due to her owner’s “personal problems.” Ruby is calm and tolerant of petting and handling but naturally scared at the kill happy shelter. She is a young, loving and lovely girl who needs a new “leash on life.” Two of her friends have already been killed, another is safe and another still available. Let’s do everything we can to make sure that Ruby leaves the shelter through the front door. Won’t you please open up your heart and home to this precious pet? Reserve her online or let a rescue know if you can help. Transportation is available if you live within a few hours of NYC. Please share and pledge. Or better yet—foster or adopt. Let’s do everything we can for Ruby tonight. Be this gingerbread girl’s hero and be the change that you want to see in the world!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per the previous owner, Ruby has never been around children or dogs. She has lived with eight other cats, but her behaviors around them are unknown. She was tense and would attempt to flee due to fear upon intake. Despite her nervousness, she allowed all handling during her initial medical exam. Reaction to assessor: Ruby was calm and relaxed upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Ruby squints her eyes and begins to blink slowly. Reaction to cage door opening: Ruby remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Ruby was hesitant of touch, but remains in place and allows all petting. She warms up slightly and head-butts lightly, but is still very focused on the assessor’s hand. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Ruby tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
