***SAFE 08/19/16*** CELESTINE NEEDS A RESCUE ANGEL TONIGHT – HE IS AVERAGE RATED BUT NEEDS SOME MEDICAL FOLLOW UP!! CELESTINE was brought into the ACC taped shut in a box! This poor cat was still friendly and allowed all petting and handling and has remained an easy to handle cat! But according to the ACC vet staff, he has exhibited some head tremors and other neuro symptoms which will need to be checked by a competent vet. He is having some problems walking and is ataxic and they feel he could have either a neurological problem or was possibly exposed to something toxic! Either way a competent vet needs to check this boy out asap. IF YOU CAN FOSTER OR ADOPT CELESTINE, PLEASE EMAIL THE HELP DESK AT [email protected] FOR RESCUE INFO. BE THIS BOY’S HERO TONIGHT!

08/12/16 14:26 Celestine was brought into the acc in a box. He sat in the box very still and silent. A great deal of tape had to be cut off of the box and was very loud, but Celestine remained quiet in the carrier. He licked his lips once or twice and watched the counselor as they removed the tape. Celestine did not attempt to leave the box when it was opened but allowed counselor to pet him all over his body and to collar him. After a few minutes of petting he allowed counselor to pick him up and take him out of the carrier. He sat still for pictures. When a new carrier was opened, he sniffed at it a few times and then crawled inside with his body very low to the ground.

08/14/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Celestine was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was very still and quiet upon intake, while the counselors attempted to remove the tape that sealed the box he came in. He lip licked a few times, but watched the counselor as they removed the tape. He allowed the counselor to pet him and pick him up afterwards, and walked into a new carrier after sniffing it a couple of times. Please note that this cat was diagnosed with a medical condition at the time of evaluation. It is difficult to determine at this time how the medical condition may be affecting the behavior. Reaction to assessor: Celestine was lying down, calm and relaxed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Celestine looks at the assessor with relaxed eyes, but does not come forward. Reaction to cage door opening: Celestine remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Celestine sniffs the assessor’s hand, accepts petting, leans in slightly, and closes his eyes. Reaction to being picked up: Celestine remains calm and allows handling. Behavior Determination: Average Celestine interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
