**SAFE 06/08/16** NEW HOPE RESCUE is needed for BABY, a neutered boy who used to sleep with his previous owner. This is another TRAGIC care of GIFTING GONE WRONG, with this boy having been gifted to the person who ultimately tossed him away like yesterday’s news. His surrender notes show a cat who wasn’t fond of dogs, who hasn’t lived with other cats, but who sounds like a groovy companion for the person he loved. Baby earned a NEW HOPE rating from the ACC, which is actually pretty common for animals who are struggling to cope with having been CRUELLY ABANDONED by their families. Baby has what it takes to be someone’s new best friend, he just needs a New Hope rescue and some TLC while he finds his way in a new home. Make that happy ending possible by finding a NEW HOPE rescue who can step up for BABY, tonight!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Baby’s previous owner reports he is friendly around strangers. He plays somewhat rough with adults and has never been around children or other cats. He has spent time with small and large breed dogs, and is fearful and aggressive around them; hissing and swatting. He was described as an affectionate cat, with a medium activity level. The family believes he will do best in a single or couple home. He tends to follow the owner around at home and play with balls or strings. Reaction to Assessor: Baby was inside his hidey den and his head sticks out from the opening. Reaction when softly spoken to: Baby looks at the assessor, blinks, and then lip licks. Reaction to cage door opening: Baby shifts around, slightly coming out of the den and watches the assessor with wide eyes. Reaction to touch: Baby shifts back inside of his den and grumbles. He comes back out to investigate when spoken to, but hisses and lip licks when petting was attempted. He does not allow touch; he hisses and strikes near the assessor’s hand as a warning. Placement Determination: New Hope Only Baby is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment, and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
