**SAFE 08/17/16** GARFIELD’S OWNERS DUMPED HIM AND 2 HOUSEMATES BECAUSE HE WAS MOVING OUT OF STATE. SINCE WHEN IS IT AGAINST THE LAW TO TAKE YOUR CATS INTO ANOTHER STATE? These excuses never cease to amaze us. GARFIELD came in with 2 other cats – Spot A1085253 – who was on last night’s euth list and status is unknown AND Sassy A1085252 who is still at the shelter and not listed yet. GARFIELD is 7 years old and has some oral ulcers in his mouth and will need to be seen by a competent vet when rescued. He is already neutered and was said to be a shy cat but one who did play with string toys and was low key in the house. Of course he is used to his two housemates so if you are thinking about saving GARFIELD, why not take along a buddy too? EMAIL THE HELP DESK AT [email protected] FOR RESCUE CONTACT INFO. GARFIELD NEEDS A RESCUE ANGEL NOW AND YOU CAN BE THE ONE TO SAVE HIM BY ACTING NOW!

08/15/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Garfield’s previous owner reports he is usually shy around strangers and tends to hide from them. He has never been around children, but has been around other cats and get along very well with them. He does not mind being brushed, but dislikes being picked up and placed into a carrier and will struggle to get away. He was described as a fearful cat, with a medium activity level. He likes to play with string and tends to follow the owner around at home, staying in the same room as the owner. Garfield was tense upon intake, but allowed counselors to place a collar on him and photograph him. He was also tense and very nervous during his initial medical exam, but allowed handling with some resistance. He has continued to display fearful behavior during his stay in the care center and may attempt to flee when given the chance, but mostly allows handling when examined by the medical team. When approached by the assessor, he was inside a hidey den, facing the back wall. He does not turn to face the assessor when coaxed, and remained motionless when touched gently through the opening. Behavior Determination: Experience Garfield tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. Any future home with children should conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
