LEIF – A1073570
Safe - 5-21-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 05/21/16 *** TRAPPED! Given that the ACC can’t even keep his name straight in the space of 2 sentences, it’s no surprise that they were also baffled when it came time to find LEIF a home. They also called him “Sydney,” but that’s about as much quality time as he got from the ACC. They managed to get him out of the trap and into a jail cell on May 13th, but they have only warehoused him since then. They guesstimate Leif to be about 2 years old, in good health, and they plan to kill him tomorrow. Look at his luminous green eyes and ask yourself: is this cat ready to die just yet? And then, work hard to find a NEW HOPE RESCUE who can pull him to safety tonight!

Reaction to touch: Leif allows a brief touch on the head, but flinches then strikes at the assessor’s hand and hisses. Placement determination: NH ONLY Leif is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. He is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
