Safe - 10-23-2016 Brooklyn
***SAFE 10/23/16*** ANOTHER CHANCE FOR FLINT WHO HAS A FRACTURED LEG AND NEEDS YOUR HELP TONIGHT!! The shelter said this: ” Flint appears to have acclimated to the shelter environment. He initially displayed fearful and unsure behaviors, retreating whenever approached and attempting to avoid contact. However, the enrichment facilitator reports he now perks up with attention and would approach the front during interactions. He is attentive, attention-seeking, appreciating petting, and leans in for more rubs while purring. He also allows to be easily picked up and held. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.” But FLINT got a great AVERAGE rating for this wonderful behavior. Plus, his new medical notes state that his cold symptoms now have resolved themselves and he is no longer sick. FLINT is only a year old a grown kitten. He deserves a chance to have a real home and a happy ending to his story. PLEASE OFFER TO FOSTER OR ADOPT FLINT NOW – FOSTERING WILL SAVE HIS LIFE AND GET HIM THE MEDICAL HE NEEDS!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
**UPDATE 10/06/16** Flint appears to have acclimated to the shelter environment. He initially displayed fearful and unsure behaviors, retreating whenever approached and attempting to avoid contact. However, the enrichment facilitator reports he now perks up with attention and would approach the front during interactions. He is attentive, attention-seeking, appreciating petting, and leans in for more rubs while purring. He also allows to be easily picked up and held. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents. Date: 09/28/16 Flint was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. The enrichment facilitator has been monitoring Flint and reports that he was very uncomfortable, stayed at the back of his kennel and avoided all contact when he first arrived. He tolerates petting and relaxes a bit when touched with a slow approach. His ears are bent flat and he continues to stress meow throughout the interaction. Reaction to assessor: Flint was hiding underneath his bogus paper at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Flint slowly comes out when called and starts to stress meow. Reaction to cage door opening: Flint remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Flint’s ears bent flat and he continues to stress meow when the assessor extends his hand out. He sniffs the assessor’s hand and lowers his body when touched. He closes his eyes and tolerates petting briefly before shifting away. His body is tense and retreats into his litter box and curls up tight to avoid contact. Please note that this cat has a severe medical condition so we may not be seeing any true behavior and behavior may change when the cat’s medical condition improves Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Flint tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his 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.
