***SAFE 10/13/16*** DUNDEE WAS FOUND IN SOMEONE’S YARD AND LURED INTO A CARRIER SO THEY COULD TAKE TO THE ACC! Poor DUNDEE was hungry so food naturally tempted him to go into a stranger’s carrier. Once he did, he found himself trapped and afraid! DUNDEE is about 3 months old – and as usual the ACC staff can’t seem to decide his age as they have 3 different ages in one bio! DUNDEE is frightened, and also caught the shelter cold. He needs YOU to offer to foster or adopt him by noon Monday or they will kill him. Period. DUNDEE will relax and be fine once he learns that not all humans are out to trick him. IF YOU CAN HELP THIS LITTLE GUY HAVE A HAPPY ENDING TO HIS STORY, PLEASE CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO OFFER TO FOSTER OR ADOPT. DUNDEE NEEDS YOU NOW.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Dundee was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. Her finder was able to lure her into a carrier with wet food and brought her to the care center. She did not allow handling upon intake, jumping into her kennel when the counselor attempting to hold her. She hissed and attempted to flee during her initial medical exam, and urinated and stress meowed when properly restrained. Reaction to assessor: Dundee was curled up by the back, stiff and alert. Reaction when softly spoken to: Dundee lowers her body and attempts to hide behind her bedding. Reaction to cage door opening: Dundee becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Dundee attempts to hide, but allows gentle petting. Her body twitches when touched and she lip licks and blinks throughout the interaction. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Dundee 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 a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
