Gone - 10-9-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 10/09/16*** BEN MAGIC IS A FIVE YEAR OLD STRAY. MAKES ONE WONDER…HAS HE BEEN ON HIS OWN ALL THAT TIME? These are the cats that need the most patience, the most of our time, the most of our heart! He’s SCARED but allows a few pets before stopping. It can be a sign of a petting induced aggression which can be easily remedied with time and patience. Offer to FOSTER OR ADOPT this SWEET guy! He’s going to need experience and no kids in the home while he works on his behavior. Save a life tonight!

10/06/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Ben looks neutral, crouched position on his cage bedding when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Ben becomes alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Ben stands up, soliciting attention then head-butts the assessor’s hand. While he seems to appreciate the petting he began to moew whine then attempts to nip (but doesn’t) as he continues to solicit attention. Placement determination: Experience / no child Initially Ben solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body he begins to meow whine and attempts to nip (but doesn’t) at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Ben becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
