CHASTITY – A1067878

**SAFE 04/04/16** Why couldn’t they have kept her?! “Chastity is a young adult female DSH cat. She was found outside. She was very friendly with her finders, who held and kissed her while she cuddled in their arms.” That is taken directly from Chastity’s intake notes, and describe her being found as a stray in the 10029 zip code on St. Patrick’s Day. She may have conjunctivitis, but the ACC vets pretty much spend all of their time KILLING adoptable cats rather than diagnosing and treating them, so an appointment with a competent vet would be in order. Chastity is only about 13 months old so she’s still a kitten, and is definitely deserving of living out a long, happy life. That only happens if a foster/adopter steps up for her tonight!

03/24/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Chastity sits upright by the front and is calm and relaxed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Chastity blinks slowly and averts her gaze. Reaction to cage door opening: Chastity remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Chastity allows brief petting, but she quickly swats and attempts to nip the assessor’s hand. Her tail starts to sway from side to side and she retreats to the back and lip licks. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Chastity is only allowing limited interaction and 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 Chastity 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. 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. Date: 03/24/16 Chastity was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was found outside and the finders reports she was very friendly towards them, and they were able to hold her and kiss her while she cuddled in their arms. She had a soft and relaxed body upon intake and did not resist, retreat, or vocalize. She became a bit nervous during her initial medical exam and attempted to flee, but still allowed handling. Reaction to assessor: Chastity was calm and relaxed by the front. Reaction when softly spoken to: Chastity sniffs the assessor and reaches out with her paw. Reaction to cage door opening: Chastity remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Chastity is a bit hesitant with quick movements, but once still she would rub against the assessor’s hand. She allows gentle stroke and begins to purr. Reaction to being picked up: Chastity remains calm and purrs when held. Behavior Determination: Average Chastity 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.
