DAKOTA – A1082520
Gone - 7-29-2016 Manhattan
**GONE 07/29/16** READ CAREFULLY TO SAVE A LIFE! His story begins with his mother’s rescue by a woman whose heart was in the right place, but whose follow-up skills may not be all that: meet DAKOTA, one of a handful of kittens who were born to a pregnant cat rescued a while back; the kittens’ father was also rescued by this same person. The kittens were spay/neutered but they were not socialized well, which led to the woman not being able to find homes for them. What did she do? She bundled them up, tossed the father kitty into the bunch, and handed the whole works over to the ACC. The ACC has also been unable to find homes for them, and in typical fashion, have decided killing them is just a much quicker solution. Long story short, DAKOTA was listed last night as rescue only, and tonight he has been given a SECOND CHANCE, and he has also been placed on the PUBLIC AT RISK LIST. Someone at the ACC must have a soft spot for DAKOTA, not soft enough to take him home themselves, but soft enough to have arranged this unusual, double second chance. PLEASE DON’T LET THAT TINY MERCY BE WASTED! FIND A FOSTER OR ADOPTER TO STEP UP FOR DAKOTA TONIGHT!

07/24/16 16:29 Joey A1082516 (Dad) and his offspring , Addison A1082517,Brett A1082518,Corey A1082519 and Dakota A1082520 are all being surrendered by the owner because she was unable to rehome them. One year ago, the owner rescued the mother cat as a stray and she was pregnant and she gave birth in her home. She had the kittens all spayed but was unable to find homes for them. They are not socilaized and only l;ived with earch other. She stated tha they are very fearful of strangers. They are litterbox trained and have no accidents outside of the box. They play well with eachother. Behavior during intake Dakota was fearful and growled inside of the carrier and was inside of the carrier along with his sibling. He was let out of the carrier on his own into a kennel, where he was scanned but we were unable to collar due to him wanting to flee, growling and trying to hide behind his sibling.

07/27/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Dakota looks tense, crouched position at the back of the cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Dakota remains in place, alert with a blank stare. Reaction to touch: Dakota leans away and growls at the assessor’s hand but once touched he began to lip lick and stiffens up. Placement determination: Experience / no child Dakota tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
