***SAFE 10/19/15***SECOND CHANCE FOR GINGERBREAD MAN-MAKE IT COUNT! Cutie pie RUSTY was surrendered to ACC because his owners were moving. Rusty received rave reviews from his previous owners who said he is friendly, outgoing, gentle, playful, great with kids, other cats, and dogs. He even slept in the bed with them at night. It is so sad that Rusty was given up on and boy does he know it. Rusty is not happy in the shelter and honestly who can blame him. Rusty needs a foster or adopter who can show him what “forever” really is. Please contact a New Hope rescue group to save Rusty’s life.

10/14/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
10/14/15 12:33 BASIC INFO Rusty’s family got him from a family member 4 years ago when he was a kitten. They surrendered him because they’re moving to a home that doesn’t allow pets. SOCIALIZATION Rusty’s family reports that he’s friendly and outgoing with new people. He lived with children ages 0-4 and is relaxed, affectionate, and tolerant with them. Occasionally, he walks away if they’re bothering him. He plays gently with adults and children. He regularly stated with another adult male cat and was relaxed, affectionate, tolerant, and played exuberantly with him. He’s lived with a medium sized dog and met strange medium sized dogs and is relaxed and affectionate with them. He’s never bit anyone. BEHAVIOR Rusty is nervous in the car. He doesn’t mind when someone brushes him with a soft brush, trims his nails, picks him up and holds him, puts him in a carrier, or wakes him up. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Rusty’s family describes him as friendly, playful, mellow, quiet, and medium energy. He follows his family around and likes to play with a laser pointer. He lived inside and slept with his owners in their bed. He ate dry Purina cat food and got chicken Temptations treats. He’s littertrained and uses uncovered and hooded liteterboxes with clay litter without having accidents. He doesn’t scratch anything-furniture or a scratching post. INTAKE Rusty was retreated to the back of his carrier and had wide eyes and dilated pupils. He sat quietly near me during his intake. I tilted his carrier to coax him out and he began growling. He was reluctant to walk out of his carrier onto the counter or into his kennel, and eventually began hissing, so we took his carrier apart and put him into his kennel in the bottom half of his carrier. He didn’t attempt to flee or strike us.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Rusty’s former family reports that he’s friendly and outgoing with new people. He lived with children ages 0-4 and is relaxed, affectionate, and tolerant with them. Occasionally, he walks away if they’re bothering him. He plays gently with adults and children. He regularly stated with another adult male cat and was relaxed, affectionate, tolerant, and played exuberantly with him. He’s lived with a medium sized dog, but also met others that were the same size therefore he was relaxed and affectionate with them. Reaction to assessor: Rusty looks neutral in his cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Rusty remains sitting upright by the front of the cage, relaxed body posture, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Rusty accepts the stroke but began to low growl during the touch and attempts to explore outside of his cage. Then his front paw is slightly lifted off the ground (ready to swipe if needed). Placement determination: NH ONLY Rusty is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. He is stressed in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
