*** SAFE 05/12/16 *** Cinco de Mayo was an utterly CRAP day for ASHES, a pudgy, spayed, 3-year-old lady who was dumped into the ACC by a former owner who is having a new baby. Never mind the fact that this SAME person told the shelter that Ashes was good with older kiddos; never mind the fact that kiddos and kitties have lived together harmoniously, for eons. Nope, someone just stuffed food into Ashes until she is now “morbidly obese,” lost interest in her, and kicked her to the curb. The ACC doesn’t even know if Ashes is 3 or 5 years old—both ages are mentioned on the shelter biography—but Ashes knows danger when it surrounds her. This smart, scared girl is a little freaked out by everything that’s happened to her over these recent days, but she still earned a respectable EXPNOCHILD rating from the ACC. This is a cat who deserves to live a nice happy life with people who don’t view her as a disposable, inanimate object. Please advocate strongly for ASHES, tonight!

05/08/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Ashes’s previous owner reports she is shy around strangers and tries to hide. She has lived with children and is gentle with them, but is not playful. She does not mind having her coat brushed, being picked up, and allowed to be placed in a cat carrier. She was described as friendly and playful, with a very high activity level. In the home, Ashes will follow the owner around and prefers to stay in same room as the owner. Reaction to assessor: Ashes was by the front, lying down and is alert when approached. Reaction when softly spoken to: Ashes looks at the assessor and blinks slowly, however she becomes alert and her eyes widen when there is a sudden noise. Reaction to cage door opening: Ashes becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Ashes lowers her head, squints her eyes, and her ears bend slightly flat and sideways when gentle pet on her head. She appears to be very uncomfortable, but tolerates gentle petting. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Ashes 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.
