*** GONE 08/29/16*** COOKIE DUMPED BECAUSE OF SELFISH OWNER WHO DECIDED ONLY -AFTER- ADOPTING HIM THAT THEY HAD”NO TIME!!” He’s ALREADY NEUTERED and at just 2 years old he’s not happy about being back at a SHELTER AGAIN! He was adopted from a shelter outside of NY, but it makes no difference…he’s STILL back in A shelter but THIS SHELTER will kill him! He’s not been around kids, cats or dogs but is outgoing around teens and adults. But in the ACC they think he’s not outgoing and stick him with an EXPNOCHILD RATING! PLEASE, offer to FOSTER OR ADOPT COOKIE and make sure this adorable guy never has to set foot in ANY SHELTER AGAIN!!

08/28/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Cookie’s previous owner reports he is friendly and outgoing around strangers. He has lived with adults and teenagers, and plays gently with everyone. He can be vocal and will meow when he gets hungry or wants attention. He enjoys being brushed and doesn’t mind being held or placed in a carrier. He was described as a friendly and affectionate cat, with a medium activity level. Around the house, he follows everyone around and prefers to be in the same room as the rest of the family. Reaction to assessor: Cookie was inside a den when approached. Reaction when softly spoken to: Cookie slowly comes out of the den and sniffs around by the front. After a moment, she rubs her head against the door to solicit attention. Reaction to cage door opening: Cookie becomes alert, but remains by the front. Reaction to touch: Cookie sniffs the assessor’s hand, and then rubs her head against it. She is a bit tense and is watchful of the assessor’s hand, but allows gentle petting. She appears extremely cautious of the environment, however, and stiffens up with sudden noise or movement. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Ohio tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may need time to warm up to his new home. 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.
