ARTICHOKE – A1087173
Gone - 9-1-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 09/01/2016***KITTEN IN DANGER! ARTICHOKE IS ONLY 8 MONTHS OLD AND was unceremoniously dumped at the “shelter” along with MANGO – A1087171,(super urgent) and APRICOT – A1087172 (status unknown). Now ARTICHOKE, who was dumped because of “too many pets” and who lived with an 8 year old child is in danger. There is no reason for this-if you wouldn’t leave your human child to be possibly killed, how can you do it to a kitten? But sub-humans do it all the time, and it’s up to those who care to step up and say “yes, I will foster this cat” or “yes, you are mine a part of my family-I see the soul in your eyes and you are more than just a ‘pet.'” Do you believe in that? Then offer ARTICHOKE a bathroom to sleep in and a chance to live by fostering-work with a rescue to save this little shy boy’s life! you will be so glad you did!

08/25/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/25/16 15:49 BASIC INFO Artichoke is a 7 month old male DSH cat. He was born outside. His owner was feeding his mother and the other outdoor/stray cats. In January, his mother gave birth to 2 kittens, her second litter. Their owner then brought them inside where she cared for them for 7 months. She was trying to rehome them but was unable to. SOCIALIZATION Artichoke is fearful. He stayed in a home with adult women and an 11 year old girl. He hid most of the time. He didn’t approach his family. Artichoke lived with a neutered adult cat, his mother, and his brother. He mated with his mother and tried to mate with his sister. The other cats avoided him. He hasn’t bit/scratched anyone. BEHAVIOR Artichoke is nervous in the car. His family chased him to catch him. He tried to climb and hold onto furniture. They wrapped a towel around him and put him in a carrier. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Artichoke’s family describes her as shy, independent, quiet, and medium energy. He lived inside and ate dry and wet Friskies foods. He got chicken as a treat. He’s littertrained, used an uncovered litterbox with clumping litter, and didn’t have accidents. Artichoke didn’t scratch the furniture or the cardboard scratching boards. INTAKE Artichoke was stiff with wide eyes at the front of his carrier. He allowed me to scan him (-). I began collaring him, but he began walking into his new carrier and faced the front. He stayed in the front while I took pictures in each carrier.

08/28/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Artichoke’s previous owner reports he is a fearful cat. He lived in a home with one adult and a teenager, but hid most of the time. He does not approach the family, and the other cats in the home tended to avoid him. He was described as a shy, independent, and quiet cat with a medium energy level. Reaction to assessor: Artichoke was on top of his den and appears neutral. Reaction when softly spoken to: Artichoke looks at the assessor with his ears tilted sideways. Reaction to cage door opening: Artichoke becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Artichoke was hesitant, but sniffs the assessor’s hand. He slowly shifts away to avoid contact, but allows gentle petting on his head and body. He appears uncomfortable with touch, lip licking and blinking during the interaction. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Artichoke tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may need time to warm up to his 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.
