***SAFE 10/23/16***BLACK AND WHITE SWEETHEART SURRENDERED DUE TO “PERSONAL PROBLEMS”-BE EDDY’S HERO! Sad sigh! Four year old, Eddy is yet another poor kitty dumped for the generic, “personal problems” excuse along with his lookalike feline friend, Fluffy (status unknown). He is yet another sweet kitty who was a great companion since kittenhood–to be discarded like yesterday’s news at the shelter. If you read closely, it says Eddy was left at the ACC due to a behavioral issue but Eddy sounds like a positively pawesome-awesome boy. He was described by his former purrson as “gentle, mellow and independent.” he likes to be picked up, has lived with kids and gets along with other cats. Eddy is one of 27 precious lives in peril tonight. He is a good, low maintenance boy who needs a kind purrson to offer temporary or purrmanent safe haven. Please be Eddy’s hero by offering to foster or adopt. Email our help desk for assistance–[email protected] Make the call for this black and white sweetheart NOW!!!!

10/11/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Eddy has lived with children ages 6 and 13 and would normally keep to himself. He’s shy around strangers and takes a few minutes to warm up to them. He lived with another male cat and was respectful and playful with him. Eddy doesn’t mind being picked up or placed in a carrier and used a scratching post made of rough rope. Reaction to assessor: Eddy was relaxed on his blanket near the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Eddy rises up with his tail curled at his side and makes eye contact with the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Eddy remains neutral. Reaction to touch: Eddy leans away when the assessor extends his hand out and has wide eyes focused on all movements. He allows petting and slowly warms up and leans in when rubbed on his head. After a couple of soft passes he lightly head butts and rubs up but he remains at the back and doesn’t come forward. Reaction to being picked up: Eddy was tense when held and immediately jumped back into the kennel. Behavior Determination: Experience Eddy may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
