**SAFE 09/21/2017** CORAL and 2 housemates were brought in to the shelter when their former owner was hospitalized. This spayed 3-year-old gem is nervous at the ACC, so of course they aren’t in any hurry to find her a new home. They ARE in a hurry to kill her, of course, which is why YOU need to message [email protected] immediately if you can foster/adopt her RIGHT NOW!

09/12/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Coral was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: a little timid, but allows handling and treatment with minimal restraint. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 09/08/17 Crouched inside her litter box, nervous, ears rotate. She lip licks when I call her name then curls up tight and shrinks her body to appear smaller. Flinches slightly when touched, very tense body, keeps her tail wrapped around her body. Tolerates being pet but seems very uncomfortable. I left some treats by the front of the cage and gave her a kuranda bed w/blanket to hide under. 09/10/17 Sitting on top of kuranda bed, tail wrapped around body and body tense. She hisses as the bear-claw reaches towards her and tolerates petting along her head and body, turning her head to watch the bear-claw and hissing again. Ears are flattened. Nervous – needs time to adjust. EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Coral was curled up tight with her head lowered on top her kuranda bed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Coral lip licks when coaxed then slowly turns her head away. Reaction to cage door opening: Coral flinches slightly then leans away. Reaction to touch: Coral leans away, her ears bend flat and she hisses when the assessor extends his hand out. She lip licks throughout the interaction and tolerates petting but stays focused and watches when pet along her body. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Coral has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and may dislike certain types of handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide her with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Coral tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children.She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home.Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
