TRISHA – A1043248
***GONE 07/16/15***SECOND CHANCE FOR THIS LOVELY LADY!! TERRIFIC TRISHA THE TABBY NEEDS YOU! Trisha is a beautiful two year old tabby who is clearly perturbed at being at the shelter. Upon intake, this great girl is described as a calm and friendly cat who allowed herself to be handled with minimal effort. It’s noted that she “appears healthy, friendly and displays an ability to adjust well to a new environment.” Flash forward to a few days later when while Trisha is purring during her behavior eval and in the midst of getting petted (for which she totally tolerates), she becomes startled, took a swat at the assessor’s hand and is instantly slapped with a NH rating. This is clearly a good girl who deserves a second chance and a new leash on life. She is also a healthy kitty with not even a noted sniffle. Can you help write a happy ending to Trisha’s tragic tale? Please offer to adopt or foster Trisha and contact a NH rescue. Transportation is available if you live within a few hours of NYC. Won’t you please be this terrific tabby’s rescue angel?

07/13/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to Assessor: Trisha was calm and relaxed, blinking slowly at the back of her cage. When softly spoken to, she comes to the front and rubs lightly on the cage door. Reaction to cage door opening: Trisha remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Trisha rubs on the assessor, allows stroke on her head and back, and starts to purr, but suddenly turns her head and bit and swats at the assessor’s hand. She did not show any signs of agitation, but became stiff and retreated to the back after. Note: Trisha was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was calm and friendly upon intake, and was easy to handle with minimal effort. She also allowed all handling during her initial medical exam. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Trisha is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She appears very social and friendly initially, but suddenly struck out without warning during the behavior assessment. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
