GADGET – A1077810
Safe - 6-21-2016 Manhattan Rescue: HVARS Please honor your pledges: http://www.hvars.org/
***SAFE 06/21/16***Gadget was surrendered by his former owner after 15 YEARS OF BEING A LOYAL companion for the excuse of allergies. How does one become suddenly allergic? Well, sounds like another case of wanting something new. His notes said he was like a shadow with his owner but wasn’t too fond of the two kiddies who liked to chase him around. Apparently the whole family has no respect for this older gent. The ACC is never sympathetic for the older population either. Gadget needs someone tonight to see that he is still worthy. He is a handsome boy and would do well with experienced pet parents without little ones. Apply to adopt or foster this orange fluff tonight!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Gadget is shy around strangers for a few minutes. He’s spent time with children ages ranging from newborn-3yrs & he would hiss, or run and hide from them and “give them dirty looks”. With the adults and teenagers he lived with, Gadget was gentle, relaxed, and sometimes affectionate with them. He hasn’t been around other animals nor has he bitten or scratched any person or animal. Reaction to assessor: Gadget does not come to the front, but remains neutral. Reaction when softly spoken to: Gadget does not come to the front, but remains neutral. Reaction to cage door opening: Gadget becomes stiff, alert, and tail flicks. Reaction to touch: Gadget grumbles, whines, and tries to nip at the assessor’s hand. Behavior Determination: Experienced, no children Gadget 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 or her new home. He may have some behavioral issues that will need to be addressed in the 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.
