LINKIN – A1076545
Safe - 6-15-2016 Brooklyn
***SAFE 06/15/16*** The youngest of 3 cats who were taken to the ACC together as strays, and the last of the trio to make the shelter’s At-Risk List, LINKIN has a charming face and a date with death tomorrow. This little pip is only about 11 weeks old and he has NO idea what awaits him tomorrow, or why he has been stuck in a crappy metal cell since June 6th. This guy should have his whole life in front of him, but right now, all he’s waiting for is a lethal injection and a black plastic freezer bag. Please, take one more look at his sweet little face and then SAVE LINKIN TONIGHT!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Linkin was brought in as stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He allowed handling upon intake, but growled when being placed into a carrier. He would hiss and growl, but allowed most handling during his initial medical exam. The enrichment facilitator reports he would stress meow by the front of the cage, but swats and attempts to flee when approached. He attempts to avoid all contact, spitting and hissing. Reaction to assessor: Linkin was by the front, meowing loudly. Reaction when softly spoken to: Linkin’s ears tilt sideways and his meows sounds more stressed. Reaction to cage door opening: Linkin becomes stiff and alert, and backs away from the front. Reaction to touch: Linkin lowers his body and hisses with extended hand. He accepts touch and twitches, but he warms up slightly. His ears bend back and he seems hesitant of touch. He starts to pat the assessor’s hand gently with his paws (it appears playful and unsure at the same time). Reaction to pick up: Linkin becomes tense and meows loudly, struggling to get back down. Placement Determination: Experience No Child Linkin tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. 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.
