***SAFE 08/06/17*** SHY GHOST WAS SPAY ABORTED AND NEEDS A HOME OF HER OWN TONIGHT! GHOST came in with a group of kittens including TWIN who is also listed tonight. She was pregnant but since has been spayed – and now because of her timid purrsonality – GHOST is on tonight’s list. She was said to like petting and use her scratch post in the home she came from. CAN YOU RESERVE THIS GIRL THROUGH A NEW HOPE RESCUE BY NOON???

08/01/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Ghost was brought in with limited information on her behavior in her previous home. She lived in a home with one adult and other cats. She is friendly with most people and got along well with the other cats. Her owner reports she enjoys petting, uses a scratching post, and always uses her litter box. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Observed Behavior – Allowed all handling EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is slightly re-arranged Reaction to assessor: Ghost was lying down, calm and relaxed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Ghost makes eye contact with the assessor, but remains in place. Reaction to cage door opening: Ghost becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Ghost was hesitant and shifts away from the assessor’s hand, but will sniff it as it extends toward her. She allows gentle petting, but will attempt to shift away and grumbles softly. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy, Calm POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: – Fearful – Ghost has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed discomfort with extended handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide her with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. RECOMMENDATIONS: – Experienced, adult home only – Ghost tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may need time to warm up to her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
