CHINX – A1077016
Gone - 6-14-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 06/14/16*** Love doesn’t need a tail and it doesn’t need 4 legs, but what love DOES need is a chance to thrive. Meet CHINX, a frightened 12-month-old kitten who was GIFTED to someone who is now moving where cats are not welcome. Please read his shelter notes to get to know this guy better, and see that his NEW HOPE rating is a reflection of his terrifying ACC experience—–NOT his true nature! CHINX is missing half of a hind leg and also missing a tail, but it sounds like that didn’t slow him down in his former home and it should NOT work against him tonight! This beautiful kitten needs some loving arms around him in a safe environment, so he can chill a little bit before showing how charming he really is. That only happens if a NEW HOPE rescue steps up for him tonight, so please help CHINX by finding a foster/adopter who is willing to work with one of those rescues. SAVE CHINX TONIGHT!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Chinx’s previous owner reports he is shy around strangers for a few minutes and is gentle when playing with adults. He was very tolerant with a 16 year old he spent time with, and was also gentle. Around two other male cats and two female cats, he was relaxed and gentle. The owner says he is very talkative and cries a lot. He escaped the home sometimes, but was allowed to come and go as he pleases. He is friendly when being picked up and held. He was best described as talkative, affectionate, and aloof with a medium activity level. Reaction to Assessor: Chinx was lying low inside of his kennel, behind his litter box. He becomes alert when approached and focuses on the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Chinx lowers his gaze and blinks softly. Reaction to cage door opening: Chinx remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Chinx stress meows and growls. He sniffs the assessor’s hand and allows brief touch on his head, but his ears tilt, he shifts away, and continues to growl loudly. He appears extremely uncomfortable and does not allow further contact. Placement Determination: New Hope Only Chinx is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He 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.
