**SAFE 08/25/16** SHY AND SENSITIVE GIZMO WAS DUMPED FOR HOME SIZE – NOW HE NEEDS A HOME – AND FAST – SIZE NOT IMPORTANT!!! GIZMO was brught into the shelter with his brother Carter, who is already safe. Now GIZMO must find someone to make him safe too! GIZMO is shy, sensitive and was around both children and adults. He was very close to his brother, Carter and on intake was sitting close and cuddling him. Now Carter is no longer an option for him to find comfort in and he is facing death tomorrow at noon all because he has a cold! GIZMO was calm, relaxed and friendly and on his assessment he was rubbing and purring for the assessor! He rocked a super BEGINNER rating for his super friendly behavior.

08/04/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/04/16 20:24 Gizmo was brought in because his owner could no longer care for him. They said that he can be shy around strangers unless his brother, Carter, is around and then he is more outgoing. He has spent time with children ages 0-3 and is respectful of them but will walk away if they get too rough. He is an exhuberant player with adults. He will not play with children. He has lived with his brother, Carter, his entire life. He is respectful, tolerant, and affectionate with Carter, even when Carter attempts to play more roughly than Gizmo likes. He has never lived with dogs. Gizmo will scratch furniture if he is not redirected to a scratching post. In the car he is quiet and relaxed. He will only pee outside of the litterbox if he is upset by something. Gizmo has never had a bath or had his nails clipped, but he loves to be brushed. He will struggle if someone picks him up and holds him. He tolerates being put in a carrier or being woken up while asleep, but isn’t particularly happy about either. He has a medium energy level- he will lay around sometimes but also enjoys running and catching toys. His favorite way to relax is on his back with his feet up in the air. He loves shiny toys or a laser pointer, and likes to watch birds and cars out the window. At the ACC, Gizmo was very quiet and sat in his carrier cuddling his brother. When his brother was taken out of the carrier and put in a separate one, he shrank into the back of his carrier. He allowed counselors to reach in and pull him out, but he struggled a bit. He allowed for collaring but would try to slink off and hide. He licked his nose frequently. He let counselors pick him up and put him back in his carrier. He continued to hide in the back of his carrier until his carrier was placed near Carter’s carrier- he then crawled to the front of the carrier to sit near Carter.
