MRS. GARFIELD aka GARFIELD – A1061733
Gone - 1-6-2016 Manhattan
**GONE 01/06/15 **AFFECTIONATE RARE FEMALE DREAMSICLE CREAMSICLE NEEDS NEW FRIEND! Meet Mrs. Garfield, who is about 4 years old, is a beautiful, friendly and loving gingerbread gal who sadly lost her home when her family moved and decided not to take her along. Mrs. Garfield has been an indoor only kitty, loves kids and was playful around the family shih tzu. Mrs. Garfield is most appreciative of attention, headbutted her assessor’s hands but then tried to take a couple of love bites. This is NOT a mean or aggressive kitty and should probably go to a calm, quiet home without kids—(or at least one with kids who are respectful of pets—since she has lived with little ones before). Mrs. Garfield is purrfectly healthy, a good girl who deserves a new “leash” on life. Can you be the kind purrson to give that to her? Please reserve Mrs. Garfield online or let a rescue know if you can help. Transportation is available. Email our help desk for assistance. Let’s help write a happy ending to Mrs. Garfield’s sad tale. Make the call for this dreamsicle creamsicle now. Save a life. Make a difference.

01/02/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Garfield’s former owner stated she is shy around strangers. He is not used to having strangers around. He loves kids, but will hide if they play too rough with her. He has not been around other cats, but he has been around a shih tzu. She played and meowed with the dog. Reaction to assessor: Mrs. Garfield looks neutral in her cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Mrs. Garfield remains lying down resting on her cage bedding. Reaction to touch: Mrs. Garfield head-butts the assessor’s hand, but began to meow whine in place then attempts to nip while she solicits attention. Placement determination: Experience / no child Initially Mrs. Garfield solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to meow whine and attempts to nip at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. 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 Garfield becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
