***SAFE 11/01/16*** FIREFLY is a 7-month-old baby who has a few things to learn about living with people. He might not be 100% teddybear, which people like, and he might still be a little excitable with people when horsing around. As for that NH rating he got on his intake medical exam…that really says nothing about FIREFLY. Cats of all ages have found their composure crumbling as they’ve been processed into the ACC, and a lot of those cats have turned out to be just fine when they have had some time to decompress in a new home. There’s nothing about FIREFLY that can’t be fixed with some guidance and TLC, and there’s absolutely none of that where he is tonight. All that waits for him at the shelter is a needle that will end his young life before it even starts. Make sure FIREFLY never, ever knows what they have planned for him by saving his life tonight.

10/19/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
10/19/16 15:41 Firefly is a young DSH cat. She was trapped outside because her finder saw her running between cars trying to cross the street. Firefly was in a covered cage. She cried/meowed when we uncovered it. She sat in the middle, tense and crouched, crying, and was tolerant while I pet her through the cage. She had wide eyes and was looking around. We tilted the cage and she walked into a feral den. She retreated to the back while I took pictures and scanned her (-). She didn’t vocalize.
No Web Memo
10/22/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Firefly looks tense, hiding in the cat den when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Firefly remains crouched position in place, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Firefly does not allow the stroke and hisses at the assessor’s hand. Placement determination: NH ONLY Firefly is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. He is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
