BERNIE – A1089003
Gone - 9-12-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 09/12/16*** SECOND CHANCE FOR FOR BEST GUY BERNIE!! MAKE IT COUNT!!…. BERNIE’S OWNER HAD CONFLICTING STORIES WHEN SHE DUMPED HIM FOR “NO TIME” – NOW THIS 3 YEAR OLD WILL DIE! BERNIE’s owner first said she had him for 2 years but then changed her story. BERNIE lived with another cat whom he allowed to be the “boss” of the home. He didn’t particularly like being around loud small kids though and would hide. BERNIE was described by his former owner as a “lazy marshmallow” and was said to love to be held and cuddled and used his litterbox all the time. On intake BERNIE was also friendly, allowing the counselor to handle him and give him food. Sadly when the assessor showed up with the big fake plastic hand, something changed because BERNIE did not want any of it. So for that reason, this super nice fellow was slapped with a NEW HOPE rating and sent packing to tonight’s euth list. BERNIE IS A GOOD BOY AND NEEDS A NEW PURRSON TO LOVE HIM. IF YOU WANT A NEW BFF AND CUDDLE BUG – LOOK NO FARTHER AND DISREGARD THE NEW HOPE RATING WHICH ONLY MEASURES A CAT’S FEAR IN THE SHELTER AND NOT HIS BEHAVIOR IN A SAFE HOME. HOWEVER YOU MUST CONTACT A RESCUE TO SAVE BERNIE – SO HURRY AND EMAIL [email protected] FOR INFO NOW!!

09/07/16 18:17 *Client at first claimed she had had Bernie for two years, and then redacted that and said “a few weeks”. She was unwilling to answer most questions about him after this* Basic Information Bernie was surrendered because owner no longer had time for him. She says he is about seven years old. Socialization Bernie is friendly around strangers and tends to hide from children, especially younger children who are being loud. He lived with a female cat and was respectful of her and “let her boss him around”. He has never lived with other animals besides this. He does not have a bite history. Behavior Bernie always uses the litter box and has never had trouble scratching furniture. Bernie loves to be picked up and held and doesn’t mind being put in a carrier. He will meow a lot if his owner leaves the house. For a New Family to Know Bernie was described as a “lazy marshmallow”. He has a low activity level and loves to cuddle stuffed animals. He usually hangs out in his favorite spot in the house. He is used to dry food, and open litter box, and clumping litter. Behavior During Intake Bernie was reluctant to get out of his carrier, but let counselor put food inside it and pet him. After a few minutes, he was tipped out of the carrier at which point he continued eating food. He allowed for collaring and allowed to be picked up and photographed. When he noticed his new carrier being opened in the middle of the room, he jumped off of the counter to jump inside of it before counselor had a chance to bring it closer to him. Once inside, he brushed head against counselor’s hands and continued eating.
