JERSEY – A1077875
Safe - 6-21-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
**SAFE 06/21/16** UNFAIR! Jersey had lived with adults for almost all of her 13 months of life, and then one day, young kiddos were thrown into the mix. Her surrender notes accuse her of being less than perfect with those wee ones, but no one is telling Jersey’s side of the story…and it’s well possible that those kids were rough with her, abrupt with her, maybe not supervised around her. Or, the whole entire “new baby” story might just be an invention—who really knows? What’s known for sure is that Jersey needs a NEW HOPE rescue to pull her to safety tonight, and without that help, she will be killed. Please advocate far and wide for JERSEY, tonight!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Jersey’s previous owner reports she would spend most of her time sleeping in the home. When she wants attention, she would meow and head-butt the owner. She allows petting for a short period, and will hiss and run off when bothered. She doesn’t like being picked up and doesn’t appear to like guests. When visitors enter the home, she will pace the room and meows and low growls. Jersey enjoys playing with balls and the children’s dolls. She is described as friendly yet independent. She has lived with adults, but recently began living with 1 year old children, which she would hiss and swat at if they tried to pet her. Reaction to assessor: Jersey was inside a hidey den upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Jersey slowly comes to the front of the den and sniffs around the opening. Reaction to cage door opening: Jersey remains alert, but calm. Reaction to touch: Jersey sniffs the assessor’s hand, and leans in for petting when spoken to. However, she will growl and lip lick afterwards. Her tail is tucked closely to her body and she becomes tense with sudden movements. She will rub her cheeks against the assessor’s hand, but will not let the assessor initiate contact with her unless she is approached very slowly. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Jersey 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.
