***SAFE 10/30/16***Lava was found outside by a kind person who regularly fed stray cats by his building. Lava got his attention by coming to him to say hello. He thought he was helping poor Lava by putting her into a carrier and bringing him to the ACC. Lava is only 8 months old and is still a baby himself. The ACC doesn’t value him like the Good Samaritan did and have put him on the tbd list tomorrow. Please apply to adopt or foster this little one tonight!

10/17/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
10/17/16 17:02 Lava is a young adult DSH cat. She was brought to ACC by a man who had been feeding him. He reports that many stray cats live outside and visit his yard to eat. He said that Lava approaches him and allows him to pick her up. Lava was in a carrier with 2 other cats. She was at the front, sticking her legs through the door. She was tense and looked around but was tolerant while I pet her, scanned her (-), picked her up, put her in a carrier, and collared her. She looked around as if she was going to rush away, so I took her pictures in her carrier. She didn’t resist or vocalize.
No Web Memo
10/21/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Lava looks tense, crouched position at the back of the cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Lava remains in place, alert with eyes dilated. Reaction to touch: Lava accepts a brief touch, but began to hiss, growl, and slowly retreat away from the assessor’s hand. Placement determination: Experience / no child Lava tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
