***SAFE 08/30/16***SECOND TIME AROUND FOR CHESTNUT!! MAKE IT WORK TONITE!! CHESTNUT is a cutie! In the bio it says she’s a female, but then CHESTNUT is referred to as a “him” so we’re not really sure what gender this gorgeous cat is, but one thing is for sure: CHESTNUT desperately needs a home tonight or she’ll be killed tomorrow at the shelter. CHESTNUT may have been someone’s pet at some point, but she ended up on the street. She is afraid at the shelter. She hides in her den and meows softly to communicate with the assessor. She is not aggressive, just shy and sad. She’s available only through New Hope Rescue. If you can save this sweet cat, please contact [email protected]! CHESTNUT is hoping you’ll be her kitty angel tonight!!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Chesnut came to the shelter as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment. Upon intake, Chesnut did not allow handling. Reaction to assessor: Chesnut is hiding in his den. Reaction when softly spoken to: Chesnut continued to hide and meowed at assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Chesnut became stiff. Reaction to touch: Chesnut moved away from assessor, eyes wide and tense body. Placement Determination: New Hope Only Chesnut is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. Chesnut is extremely fearful in the shelter environment 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.
