CHARLIE – A1067806
Safe - 3-30-2016 Brooklyn Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
**SAFE 03/30/16** EBONY CHARLIE DOESN’T LIKE SHOTS……Certainly no reason to be dumped at the ACC, yet that’s what his owner did. “The owner states that ever since she has been administering his asthma shots that Charlie has been more aggressive to her only.” CHARLIE is already a nervous guy to begin with because he is DECLAWED. So naturally he feels defenseless. NOW, he is in a totally foreign environment and he doesn’t know what to think…..CHARLIE is already NEUTERED and only 3 years old. PLEASE RESCUE CHARLIE FROM HIS CLUELESS OWNER AND THE EQUALLY CLUELESS ACC TONIGHT!! He is New Hope only so must be pulled by a rescue. If you need assistance, contacting a rescue email us at [email protected]

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per the previous owner, Charlie has been increasingly more aggressive ever since they’ve been giving him medication. The owner states that ever since she has been administering his asthma shots that Charlie has been more aggressive to her only. The enrichment facilitator has been monitoring Charlie and reports that he was nervous and curled up at the back of the kennel when he first arrived. He slowly warmed up and would lightly head butt but would randomly swat and try to bite. Reaction to assessor: Charlie’s ears bend flat and would hiss with his body lowered in the litter box. Reaction when softly spoken to: Charlie hisses and charges forward attempting to swat. Reaction to cage door opening: Charlie retreats to the back and starts low growling. Reaction to touch: Charlie continues to low growl with eyes focused on all movements. He sniffs the assessor’s hand and would lightly head butt. Charlie rubs his body against the assessor allowing petting all over. Shortly after he becomes agitated and will swat and try to bite the assessor. Initially Charlie solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body he begins to swat and try and bite at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. 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 Charlie becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Charlie 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 and bite 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.
