CHARLES – A1059777
Safe - 1-5-2016 Manhattan
**SAFE 1/5/16*** CHARLES WAS FOUND BY SOMEONE WHO SAID HE WAS “TOSSED OUT” IN FRONT OF A CHURCH IN THE BRONX – HE WAS BROUGHT TO THE ACC WHERE HE CAUGHT A COLD – AND NOW IS LISTED! CHARLES is a very handsome lilac point Siamese mix who is about 2 years old. He was friendly to the person who found him and since they felt bad for him being outside in the weather, they took him to the shelter, thinking he’d find a home. Sadly the ACC failed poor CHARLES and even gave him their cooties which put him on tonight’s euth list. CHARLES was standing at the front of his cage for his assessment, soliciting attention and giving head-butts to the assessor’s hand! He enjoyed petting but nipped at the hand so for that perfectly normal cat behavior, they slapped him with a EXPNOCHILD rating AND DID NOT EVEN PUT HIM ON THE PUBLIC ADOPTION SITE TONIGHT! Everyone knows that cats sometimes nip gently as part of their showing attention to you – but the ACC seemed to use this as an excuse to get rid of this sweet boy. CHARLES DESERVES TO LIVE AND HAVE A HAPPY HOLIDAY. PLEASE CONSIDER ADOPTING OR FOSTERING THIS WONDERFUL CAT – AND GIVE HIM THE FAIR CHANCE HE DESERVES. CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO PULL HIM TO SAFETY!!

12/06/2015 PET PROFILE MEMO
12/06/15 Charles A1059777 is an est 2 yr old lilac PT siamese shorthair who was found in front of a church in the Bronx. The finder stated they believe he was “tossed out” as he’s still fairly young, friendly & clean. They felt bad for him and stated they didn’t think he could survive outdoors in this coming weather. They stated Charles was friendly and allowed them to pick him up and place him into a carrier to be brought over to us at the BXACC. During intake Charles had a relaxed soft body posture and allowed all handling. He allowed to be scanned (-), collared & taken pictures of, including positioning him during his photo session. He didn’t seem to mind being picked up/held and was placed into a kennel with ease.
No Web Memo
12/16/2015 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Charles looks neutral in his cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Charles remains standing at the front of the cage, relaxed body posture, soliciting attention. Reaction to touch: Charles head-butts the assessor’s hand and appreciates petting on the head and body. However, after a few strokes he began to moderately nip at the hand then continue to solicit attention. Placement determination: Experience / no child Charles is social and affectionate but appears to be easily overstimulated. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Charles becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance.
