SAFE 04/08/15 – SKIPPY – A1029749 – BROOKLYN, NY
13 MONTH OLD SKIPPY FOUND IN ELMHURST QUEENS IS TIMID AND GENTLE AND WILL DIE FOR IT! PLEASE SAVE THIS KITTEN! SKIPPY was found in someone’s yard, along with a small group of cats. SKIPPY was able to be handled once she realized nothing bad was going to happen to her, but then she wound up in ACC and now this little girl from Queens will lose her life without your help. One thing is for sure, she’s adorable, petite and sweet. She needs a little TLC and she’ll be a wonderful foster or adoptive cat-but for that she really needs you! Offer to foster this little gem, and save her precious life! SAVE SKIPPY TONIGHT!

03/25/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: Skippy was brought to the shelter as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history previous to was seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment she was displaying fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Retreats as I started to get closer but after a steady low approach using soft voices she relaxed a little and I was able to pet her and interact with her in a limited way. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents with no children. Reaction to assessor: attempts to hide upon my approach (3) When spoken quietly: continues to hide (3) Reaction to door cage opening: retreats (3) Reaction to touch: moves away from me, tries to flee cage (4) Reaction to toy or novel object: moves away from me, tries to flee cage (4) Try picking cat up: not tolerant of this type of handling, very afraid, tries to flee. Placement Determination: Experience no child
