ATARI – A1074185
Safe - 5-26-2016 Brooklyn Rescue: Animals Can't Talk Please honor your pledges: http://www.animalscanttalk.org/You_Can_Help/
***SAFE 05/26/16*** ATARI means in Japanese “to receive something fortuitously”, but the only this this gentle and shy four year old boy has received is a sentence of death by ACC. He was bought in from Coney Island, Brooklyn, a sewer of a place for cats where they are often dumped and not treated well. He wasn’t aggressive with ACC staff, curing up into a tight ball and wishing it would all go away. Found as a ‘stray’ someone carted him into the Brooklyn ‘shelter’ and now his life is on the line, for he’s a scroungy looking black cat with a poor picture. Why help this boy? Because timid and tender boys like this become the best cats ever in caring and loving homes. He stands little chance without someone seeing the good in his eyes, the potential, the need to be loved. Please save this precious guy from death. Save ATARI now!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Atari was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. Reaction to assessor: Atari is curled up at the back of the kennel with wide eyes. Reaction when softly spoken to: Atari raises his head up and becomes alert. Reaction to cage door opening: Atari lies motionless. Reaction to touch: Atari’s ears bend flat and flinches when first touched. He lip licks, tolerates petting and cries out when touched at the base of his tail. As I leave he turns his head towards the wall and tightens his body up. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Atari tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and 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.
