ANGELICA – A1085861
Safe - 8-24-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
**SAFE 08/24/16** TRICKED into a cat carrier, pregnant ANGELICA was held captive in someone’s home for a couple of weeks. One day while she was playing in a cat tunnel she was TRICKED a second time, ultimately being pressured into another carrier and taken to the ACC. Moves like that are NOT going to engender trust in the human species, so it’s not shocking that ANGELICA was very protective of her babies when she finally had them at the ACC. Tonight the entire little family of ANGELICA, ARADIA and AMPORA are all at the mercy of NEW HOPE rescues, all in need of a foster home so they can regroup and learn to trust again. If YOU can be that hero, please message [email protected] so one of the PODR Help Desk volunteers can assist you with the process. Otherwise, please share their stories and pledge on their threads, because that’s the ONLY way ANGELICA-ARADIA and AMPORA will make it out of the ACC alive, tomorrow!

08/17/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/17/16 19:08 Angelica is an adult female DSH cat. She was found outside 2-3 weeks ago. Her finder lured her into a carrier with food and kept her at home since. Angelica’s finder reports that she spent most of her time in the window sill or behind the couch. She sometimes allowed the adult woman and adult man to pet her and sometimes hissed when they approached. She never bit or scratched anyone. Angelica ate dry and wet cat foods and used an uncovered litterbox with scooping litter. She ran away from her finder when she tried to pick her up to put her in the carrier. Angelica was playing in a cat tunnel, so the finder blocked one end and she walked into the carrier at the other end. Angelica was stiff and retreated in her carrier with wide eyes. She was tolerant while I picked her up with a towel, placed her on the floor, and collared her. As I began to pick her up again, she tried to walk away. I put her in a new carrier and she retreated to the back. She didn’t vocalize.
No Web Memo

Reaction to assessor: Angelica looks neutral, sitting upright on her cage bedding when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Angelica remains in place, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Angelica growls at the assessor’s hand and does not allow the touch. Placement determination: NH ONLY Angelica is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. She is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
