CHARLEY – A1091022

***SAFE 09/30/16*** CHARLEY is a 4 year-old beauty who was dumped into the shelter system on account of a “child conflict.” That’s a pretty broad statement that could mean a lot of things. CHARLEY might be rather abrupt with little kids, he might be afraid of munchkins poking him in the eyes…or CHARLEY might be completely innocent. Owners hardly need to pass a lie detector test when surrendering a cat, and anything goes in the ACC lobby. We do know that CHARLEY earned a NH RATING during his initial medical exam, which is typical of cats whose people have just betrayed them, and we also know he has been deemed “rescue only.” Please share CHARLEY far and wide, and contact a New Hope rescue if you have a place for him in your own home, or would be willing to foster. It has to happen for CHARLEY tonight. Tomorrow will be too late.

09/24/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
09/24/16 09:46 Charley A1091022 is a 4yr old neutered male white & orange DSH feline who was picked up as a stray at a month old & is being surrendered due child conflict/allergies. Charley was last seen by a veterinarian in 2015 and currently has no known health issues/injuries. Socialization: Around strangers Charley will hide. He hasn’t been around other animals but was gentle, exuberant, relaxed/affectionate & playful with the adults in the home. The owner cares for children in the home including a grandchild who is allergic to Charley. Around the children Charley will swat, growl and or hide from them. Charley hasn’t bitten/scratched any person or animal. Behavior: Charley hasn’t been on a car ride. He isn’t bothered by the following: being picked up/held, being brushed, having his nails trimmed or with being placed into a carrier. Charley hasn’t been given a bath or been disturbed while sleeping/resting. For a New Family to Know: Charley is described as friendly, affectionate, playful & confident with a medium-high activity level. When the owner is home Charley follows them around sometimes. He enjoys mouse & ball toys and is an indoor only cat that sleeps where ever. Charley eats dry Friskies 1-2x a day. He is uncovered litter box trained with clumping litter within. Charley doesn’t scratch on anything in the home. Intake Behavior: Charley initially had a soft body & soft eyes. He allowed to be scanned as he walked out of his carrier. As I was taking his pictures Charley kept trying to jump off the back drop table and became upset as I didn’t let him and was tail twitching which means he was annoyed. He then began growling, hissing and swatting. I got him into a freeman net which he wasn’t too happy with and I transferred him into the kennel while in the freeman net with ease. Due to these behaviors Charley’s picture had to be taken in his kennel.
