***SAFE 08/11/16*** WAIT, SHE’S A GIRL AND IT’S HER THIRD NIGHT ON THE LIST! PLEASE MAKE IT RIGHT FOR ALMO BY SAVING HER LIFE TONIGHT! Given that this is ALMO’s third night on the kill list, her situation may be familiar to some people….but her story still bears repeating. This baby girl was minding her own business in a yard, when someone WHO DIDN’T OWN THAT YARD, decided to take it upon themselves to catch ALMO and take her to the ACC…..why? Because they felt it was “too hot” outside for her. WHO GOES INTO SOMEONE ELSE’S YARD AND STEALS A KITTEN?! Well, the word “thief” springs to mind, as do words like “neighborhood busybody” and “Crazy McCrazy Pants.” Meanwhile, ALMO is still 15 weeks old, she’s still got a respectable EXPNOCHILD rating, and she is STILL waiting to die at the ACC. There are 45 other felines on the list tonight, and she has been spared on the past 2 nights when there were more than 70 felines overall, who were scheduled to die. Someone at the ACC has clearly been trying their best to keep ALMO alive but that won’t help her tomorrow—only a FOSTER or ADOPTER can save her life, tonight!

07/26/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Almo looks tense, crouched position at the back when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Almo remains in place, hissing at the assessor, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Almo hisses at the assessor’s hand, but once touched he stiffens up and shows no interest. Placement determination: Experience / no child Almo tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
