ZIPPY – A1056427
Safe 11-4-2015 Brooklyn
***SAFE 11/04/15*** ZIPPY was brought into the ACC in a feral trap,yet is expected NOT to be scared out of her mind! The 10 month old allowed handling but growled and at this point needs to go to a home without children. At least until she’s used to her new surroundings and has time to decompress! Thus scared,LITTLE kitten needs a FOSTER or ADOPTER in order to save her life! Can you be that person to save ZIPPY?

11/02/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Zippy was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She attempted to flee upon intake and during her initial medical exam, but allows handling although she growls during the process. Reaction to Assessor: Zippy becomes stiff and alert upon approach, and was growling. Reaction when softly spoken to: Zippy focuses on the assessor and lip licks. Reaction to cage door opening: Zippy remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Zippy remains in place for petting and relaxes a bit, but continues to lip lick and growl. She does not display any further reaction and allows petting on her head and back. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Zippy tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
