GINGER – A1092245
Gone - 10-10-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 10/10/16*** GINGER DUMPED DUE TO “PERSONAL PROBLEMS”… YET THE WOULDN’T GIVE BEHAVIOR TENDENCIES, OTHER THAN TO SAY SHE WAS ” BECOMING AGGRESSIVE!” This is, if you believe someone who would dump their 5 year old pet at a HIGH KILL SHELTER! No words ever spoken by a person who could do this should even be believed. It’s just like a dumper to lie to cure their own dirty conscious! GINGER will need someone with experience and no kids! This girl will tip- tap her way into your HEART…and hopefully, you will let her into your home!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Ginger was brought in without information on her behavioral tendencies in a home environment. Her previous owner reports she has become aggressive, but did not give any further details. She was very nervous during her initial medical exam, hissing, growling, and trying to bite when handled. The enrichment facilitator reports she appeared very frightened during their first interaction, and needed some more time to adjust. On the second day, she was by the front but ignored the assessor. When the door opens, she focuses on the door and was looking to escape. She hisses to avoid contact and retreats to the back of her kennel. Reaction to assessor: Ginger was lying down with a low body posture upon approach. Reaction to cage door opening: Ginger initially backs away, but inches forward to sniff around. Reaction to touch: Ginger sniffs the assessor’s hand and allows gentle petting with a slow approach. She seemed to warm up slightly, but is very tense and hisses when touched on her body. She does not allow further contact and returns to a low body posture, stiff and alert. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Ginger 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 a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
