**SAFE 11/01/16***LOVELY LINDSEY HEALTHY GIRL NEEDS YOU! Lindsy is a beautiful two year old girl who would LOVE to go home with YOU! Lindsy was found by a person who said she was very easy to handle, pick up and pet. We are not sure why the finder decided to dump this poor cat at the kill happy shelter. Upon intake, Lindsy was very quiet, calm and allowed all handling. However, as soon as she got wind of where she was, she got very fearful and exhibited behavior that helped her get slapped with a NH rating. Please give this pretty girl the chance to decompress from being at the shelter–please be her hero by offering to foster or adopt. Email our help desk for assistance–[email protected] Lindsy has to be pulled through a rescue. Please be the kind purrson to give her the chance to live. Make the call for lovely LIndsy NOW!!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Lindsy was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in a previous home. According to the finder, she was able to pick Lindsy up and pet her. She was able to put the cat in a box without struggle. An admissions counselor reported that upon intake Lindsy was very quiet and calm, allowed all handling. During her initial medical exam, the vet tech indicated that Lindsy was nervous, hissed, and displayed distance-increasing behaviors while trying to handle. Reaction to assessor: Lindsy was sitting up on her blanket at the back of the kennel, with tense body posture, avoiding eye contact. Reaction when softly spoken to: Lindsy stayed motionless, watched assessor with wide-dilated eyes. Reaction to cage door opening: Lindsy remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Wouldn’t allow touch, pulled head and body back, hissed and swatted, without claws, and was very stressed. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Lindsy 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.
