SIERRA – A1036651
**SAFE 05/24/15** Sierra Has A Luxurious Coat And A New Hope Rating, Please Help This Lost Pet Find A New Home Tonight! There is something very compelling about Sierra, even though his intake photo is fairly out of focus. His direct, intense gaze hints at a charming character, and his dark facial accents give him a tiny little smile. This long-haired beauty is not happy to be incarcerated and that has played out as a New Hope rating, which means that a rescue group will need to pull Sierra from the shelter in order to save him. Rescues would love to save Sierra but they need a foster or adoptive home for placement, somewhere that offers love and understanding. Is that your house? Sierra desperately hopes so. He is merely 5 years old, and he does not want to be the first cat killed tomorrow afternoon…..

05/21/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: Sierra was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to was seeing during the evaluation. He seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He is extremely fearful and currently does not tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. Reaction to assessor: hisses, growls at me (3) When spoken quietly: hisses, growls at me (3) Reaction to door cage opening: become stiff, alert, continues to hiss (3) Reaction to touch: swats at me (4) Try picking cat up: not tolerant of this type of behavior, hisses swat.
