BISCUIT – A1093236
Gone - 10-23-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 10/23/16*** BISCUIT is a 2 year old family pet who was kicked to the curb by the people who, in theory, had invited her to be a part of their life years 2 ago. Now BISCUIT has suffered the anguish of being dumped because of “no time,” which really comes down to “no inclination.” “No desire.” Loads of people don’t have time for a pet, but they love them anyway, and they would never leave them at a high-kill shelter. It wasn’t “time” that brought BISCUIT to the death list, and it sure isn’t “time” that she has tonight. What BISCUIT has tonight, is you. Please don’t let her down. Win the race against time by finding her a new beginning right now.

10/15/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Biscuit is shy around strangers and can take several minutes to warm up to them. He has not been around other cats, dogs or children but lived with 3 adults and would engage in gentle play with them. Biscuit rarely has accidents outside the litterbox and will spray and was not taken to the vet for this issue. Her owner describes her as an affectionate and quiet cat with a medium activity level. Reaction to assessor: Biscuit was curled up in her litter box with wide eyes watching the assessor and her tail at her side. Reaction when softly spoken to: Biscuit’s ears perk up then she lifts her head up to get a better look. Reaction to cage door opening: Biscuit flinches then curls up tighter. Reaction to touch: Biscuit lip licks when the assessor extends his hand out then closes her eyes and buries her head into her bedding trying to avoid eye contact. She stays immobile when pet but slowly warms up and leans against the assessor’s hand for rubs. Reaction to being picked up: Biscuit is very tense when picked up and immediately tries to leap away. Behavior Determination: Experience Biscuit may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
