***SAFE 10/26/16***HANDSOME BUTTERFLY is a sweet guy who is desperately in need of help tonight! His owner went into a nursing home, leaving poor 6 year old BUTTERFLY and his cat pals to be brought to the shelter. Sadly if BUTTERFLY is not rescued, he will be killed tomorrow at the shelter. BUTTERFLY has striking gray and white coloring and he’s neutered. BUTTERFLY is feeling sad at the loss of his home and his owner and his pals. He sits in his litter box and allows himself to be pet briefly. But this guy is scared and needs some time to warm up to his new home. He’s available only through New Hope Rescue, where you can foster this handsome guy until he’s ready for adoption. He’s a sensitive soul, in need of love.

10/23/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Butterfly was brought in without information on his behavioral tendencies in a home environment. He lived with three other cats and was hissing upon intake. The counselors were able to pick him up using gloves and positioned him for pictures. He attempted to flee, but allowed handling and started to growl once inside his carrier. He also displayed distance-increasing behaviors during his initial medical exam. Reaction to assessor: Butterfly was lying in his litter box, calm and relaxed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Butterfly looks at the assessor, and then he averts his gaze. Reaction to cage door opening: Butterfly starts to growl becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Butterfly hisses at the assessor’s hand, but pokes his head forward to sniff it. He accepts brief petting on his head, but hisses and strikes at the hand to end contact. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Butterfly 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 uncomfortable 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.
