KIYU – A1124733
Safe - 9-21-2017 Brooklyn
**SAFE 09/21/2017** KIYU is a KITTEN who was gifted to someone that probably didn’t want her in the first place, and who definitely bailed on her under the pretense of “moving.” Kiyu has endured a lot of change in her short life, and that fright is reflected in a NEW HOPE ONLY rating. This is a GOOD GIRL who just needs a chance! Message [email protected] if YOU can foster/adopt KIYU, TONIGHT!

09/13/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Lived Indoors Previously lived with: Adults Behavior toward strangers: Shy Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Unknown Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Bite or Scratch history: None Litter box training: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Friendly and affectionate cat with a high activity level. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Nervous and tries to flee. Was netted for PE and hissed but did not try to bite ENRICHMENT NOTES: 09/10/17 Hunched over on top of kuranda bed, ears flattened and body tense. Hisses and strikes when the bear-claw reaches towards her. Frantic movements – jumps down and tries to find a direction to flee towards, hissing and swatting when I reach forward again. 09/11/17 Lying in litter box, body tense and ears are completely flattened. She makes eye contact and hisses over and over again as the bear-claw reaches towards her. She gives the claw two quick swats before it can touch her. Not interested in further interaction at the moment. 09/13/17 Tense and wary, hiding underneath the bogus paper. Skittish, shifts around underneath when I tried coaxing her forward. Not open to interacting, very fearful. She hisses, swats then quickly shifts away and hides on the other side of the double kennel. Low body posture, flat ears and tail tucked under her body. Not interested in treats. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: Fearful – Kiyu has displayed fearful behavior during their stay in the care center and has displayed distance-increasing behavior with extended handling. Fear aggression can occur when a cat perceives a threat and may escalate if they cannot escape. 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: Placement with a New Hope partner – is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time
