LEILANI – A1081734
Gone - 7-27-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 07/27/16*** CRUELLY LET DOWN BY HER OWNER! Meet LEILANI, a spayed 8-year-old cat who wound up at the ACC because the ONE person she depended on, basically sold her down the river. Oh yeah, “personal problems” were cited, some convoluted thing about not being able to “walk to take care of” Leilani, whatever that means. More telling is the fact that Leilani was reported as having vomited before being taken to the shelter, which may have been due to something as simple as a hairball! But that person decided to cut ties with Leilani, rather than doing the right thing and making sure this grande dame was healthy and feeling fine. Now, poor confused LEILANI has an EXPNOCHILD rating and a date with death tomorrow! Don’t let that happen! Advocate extensively for LEILANI tonight!

07/21/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Leilani was brought in without information on her behavioral tendencies in a home environment. She was not receptive to introduction upon intake and hissed, but allowed some handling. She was fractious during her initial medical exam and resisted handling. Our enrichment facilitator reports she makes eye contact during their first interaction, but turns to fall the wall afterwards with her tail curled up beside her. She tolerates being held, but has a stiff body. She allows petting, but lip licks. She appears tense and wary of her surroundings. Reaction to assessor: Leilani was resting upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Leilani chirps and looks at the assessor. After a moment, she quickly comes to the front and head-butts the cage door vigorously. She begins rubbing on various objects on her cage when spoken to, but her fur pilo-erects. Reaction to cage door opening: Leilani becomes alert, but continues to rub her cheeks on objects in her cage. Reaction to touch: Leilani becomes stiff and looks at the assessor’s hand, but will rub her body against it when the assessor leaves their hand motionless. When the assessor initiates contact, she quickly turns around and focuses on the hand with a tense body with her tail still pilo-erect and swaying back and forth. She continues to solicit attention as long as the assessor doesn’t move, and appears to be easily overstimulated with contact. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Leilani is social and affectionate but appears to be easily overstimulated. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Leilani becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a home with experienced cat parents and without children.
