KITTAY – A1091044
Gone - 9-27-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 09/27/16*** GOOD WITH KIDS AND OTHER CATS – KITTAY WAS DUMPED ALONG WITH ONE HOUSEMATE FOR TOO MANY PETS – AND NOW SHE WILL DIE AS A RESULT OF THIS BETRAYAL!! KITTAY is a PERFECTLY HEALTHY cat! She lived in a multi-cat household where she got along with the other cats. KITTAY is also not spayed – and her owner claims she soiled outside her box. Hmmmm so is this really about too many cats? Or maybe an owner who didn’t spay his female, and she is marking because there are un-neutered males in the home? We all know that owners will say anything to justify dumping a pet. KITTAY was brought in with another cat named PANCHA – A1091045 who is another unspayed female and who is pregnant. So needless to say, this was a betrayal on KITTAY’S part and not her fault. This cat was not aggressive but the ACC has rated her NEW HOPE only because she hissed and tried to get away!! Of course she will want to run in the scary shelter environment – we can’t fault her for that! KITTAY needs an adopter or foster by noon Tuesday. PLEASE GIVE KITTAY A CHANCE TO HAVE A FUREVER HOME AND A HAPPY ENDING TO HER STORY. CONTACT A RESCUE NOW TO PULL HER TO SAFETY!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Kittay lived previously with a number of other cats, both male and female. She interacted well with the other cats. She was also exposed to children, with whom she was tolerant. She is described as sometimes aloof and also exuberant, running and jumping around the house, but she does not care for being held. She does not aggress, but will try to escape. Kittay’s previous owner reports that she sometimes urinated outside the litterbox, most notably on the couch, but we are unaware of what, if any, modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. Please note as well that Kittay’s previous living situation may have contributed to the behavior seen. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a different home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litterbox should this behavior continue in a home environment. We also recommend that Kittay be provided with numerous litterboxes throughout the house as she adjusts to her new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as she learns the space and successfully defecates in her main litterbox(es). Kittay is struggling to acclimate to the busy shelter environment. She has offered distance-increasing behaviors (fleeing, swatting) during her intake and during her initial medical examination. In the holding room Kittay has been hiding in her cat den and has not been willing to interact when visited. Kittay is clearly uncomfortable in the shelter and it is in her best interest to move back into a home environment as quickly as possible. Placement determination: New Hope Only Based upon the behaviors shown in the care center thus far, as well as the previous owner’s notes, we recommend placement with a New Hope partner who can move Kittay into a less stressful environment, allow her to decompress, and then re-evaluate her behavior before placement into a permanent home.
