SAFE 04/11/15 – SPROCKET- A1032341- BROOKLYN, NY
SPROCKET NEEDS YOU TO SAVE HER AND HER UNBORN BABIES! SHE IS JUST A KITTEN HERSELF! Poor little SPROCKET! She’s just 10 months old, and the shelter threw a ‘new hope’ only rating at her. She’s a scared little mom to be, and is it any wonder she’s trying to defend herself from everyone and anyone? While she wouldn’t allow handling at ACC, keep in mind she was ‘trapped’ in a tomahawk trap, shoved into a van and brought to ACC where she and her unborn babies will be killed tomorrow-thanks to someone who thought they were doing her a ‘favor’! Don’t let this little girl pay with her life for being upset and defiant! In a quiet and calm place, where she knows she’s safe, SPROCKET would be a different soft of cat altogether-mom cats to be are often super protective of themselves and their babies on the way. Please-step up and say ‘yes’ to foster this little girl and her soon to be family-don’t let them be killed! SAVE 10 MONTH OLD SPROCKET TONIGHT!!!!!!

04/08/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Notes: Sprocket was brought to the shelter as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. She seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment Sprocket was displaying behaviors that prevent placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She 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: was hiding when I approach cage (3) When spoken quietly: continues to hide (3) Reaction to door cage opening: becomes stiff, alert (3) Reaction to touch: growls, hisses, strikes, does not allows petting at all (5) Reaction to toy or novel object: hisses, growls, swat (5) Try picking cat up: did not attempt to pick the cat up, fractious behavior. Placement Determination: NewHope
