BONZAI – A1069041
Safe - 4-8-2016 Manhattan
**SAFE 04/08/16**KITTEN! That’s right, Bonzai is only 6 months old, a mere baby girl, and already she has landed at the worst place in the world! She was found as a stray but everything about her, from her health to her clean coat to her wariness at the ACC, suggests that this girl is used to being around her own home. When kittens are jerked out of their comfort zone, they don’t have a ton of life experience to guide them in handling new situations gracefully. Her EXPNOCHILD rating means she can be adopted directly by someone who will allow her to warm up to them in her own time, or she can be fostered through a New Hope rescue. Either way, please advocate strongly for Bonzai tonight!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Bonzai came into the care center as a stray so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. During intake Bonzai had a tense, stiff body. Bonzai would retreat from an extended hand and growl and hiss, and attempted to swat the handler. Bonzai did not allow herself to be scanned, collared, or photographed, and showed signs fear towards the handler. Reaction to assessor: Bonzai is hiding under her bedding on approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Bonzai continues to hide. Reaction to cage door opening: Bonzai remains motionless and does not respond. Reaction to touch: Bonzai hisses briefly, remains hidden, and becomes immobile when touched. Behavior Determination: Experience, no children Bonzai tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her 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.
