Gone - 8-21-2016 Manhattan
**GONE 08/21/16** DEHYDRATED, UNDERWEIGHT, LIMPING ON FRONT LEFT LEG!! Poor Candace came into ACC in pretty bad shape and not happy. This BOY (yup ACC named him Candace) seems to be pleading for help in his photo. He needs an angel to come rescue him and give him a nice comfy home to recover and decompress. Advocate for Candace tonight, before his life is ended tomorrow!

No Web Memo
08/19/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Candace looks neutral, crouched position at the back when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Candace remains in place, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Candace slowly retreats away from the assessor’s hand then low growls however, he began to accepts the stroke and stiffens up. Placement determination: Experience / no child Candace tolerates attention and petting but may be stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
