Gone - 10-11-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 10/11/16*** PERFECTLY HEALTHY FOUFOU IS A SOCIAL AND AFFECTIONATE KITTY WHO JUST GETS A BIT OVERSTIMULATED WHEN GIVEN ATTENTION – AND FOR THAT – HE WILL DIE! Yes the ACC has reached an all time low here. Perfectly adoptable FOUFOU got an EXPNOCHILD rating for leaning into petting, giving head butts, purring and rubbing, and – oh- he nipped the air near the assessor’s hand!! WOW. Maybe it was a “love bite”. All cats do this. But at the ACC – this one little thing will send a cat to his death. FOUFOU is a young 3 yr old who just needs the right purrson to play with him and let him get his energy out. DO YOU WANT AN AFFECTIONATE BOY LIKE FOUFOU?

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Foufou was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was fearful upon intake and hissed when taken out of his carrier. He was also nervous and hissed during his initial medical exam, trying to bite when attempting to handle. Reaction to assessor: Foufou was lying down, calm and relaxed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Foufou gets up, meows, and rubs his face against the cage door. Reaction to cage door opening: Foufou remains soft and relaxed, greeting the assessor by the opening. Reaction to touch: Foufou head-butts, leans in for petting, and begins to purr. His tail quivers slightly and waves from side to side during the interaction. He opens his mouth and nips the air near the assessor’s hand once, but continued to rub against the assessor afterwards. Reaction to pick up: Foufou was tense and wiggled to be placed back down. He retreats to the back, but will come forward again and solicit attention. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Foufou is social and affectionate but appears to be easily overstimulated. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Foufou becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a home with experienced cat parents and without children.
