*** SAFE 09/24/16 *** WHO DOESN’T LOOK FORWARD TO A DOUGHNUT?? …A volunteer writes: Doughnut is a powdery puff of a girl. She is shy and does a lot of twisting and turning when you extend your hand to entice her to be petted. You can tell that she wants to be, as she moves forward, back and all around, but it takes Doughnut a while to trust that you mean well. Once her desire for affection overcomes her timidity, she is like any other little kitty. As it turns out, she loves having her chin rubbed. It might take more time for her to enjoy being held in your arms, so patience is clearly a virtue with Doughnut….The ACC doesn’t run on “Dunkin” so be sure to get your application in early for this lovely, SPAYED lass…..Time is up at NOON and the ACC doesn’t hold back….If you need assistance, email us at [email protected]

During the evaluation the counselor was able to pet, collar, and take a photo of the cat. When given food the cat began to eat and remained relaxed throughout the rest of the evaluation. The counselor then placed the food in the carrier at which point the cat went back in with ease.

09/08/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Doughnut was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. Reaction to assessor: Doughnut was curled up and hiding underneath the bogus paper. Reaction when softly spoken to: Doughnut shifts around underneath the paper but doesn’t come out. Reaction to cage door opening: Doughnut remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Doughnut lifts her head up and lip licks when the assessor extends his hand out. She sniffs the assessor’s hand, allows petting and slowly warms up to contact. After a few soft passes she rises up and slowly approaches the front with her tail at body level. She is a bit hesitant but she slowly warms up and appreciates attention. Reaction to being picked up: Doughnut was tense when held, lip licked and looked around wary of her surroundings. Behavior Determination: Experience Doughnut may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
