LINX – A1078611
Safe - 7-1-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
**SAFE 07/01/16** Perfectly great girl, LINX, is only 12 months old and should be facing a long, happy life. What does she face tomorrow? Only her DEATH, unfortunately, at the hands of the “Animal Care Center” aka “shelter” that was supposed to have found a home for her. LINX has only been at the ACC since June 23rd and her shelter notes make her out to be a LOVELY LASS. She’s just a bit wary at the ACC, which is to be expected, and she earned a respectable EXPERIENCE rating. Please make sure that LINX is able to love her special people for many years to come, by finding them for her tonight in the first place! A FOSTER/ADOPTER is all that stands between LINX and a lethal injection, please advocate relentlessly for her tonight!

06/26/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Linx was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She jumped out of the large cardboard box she came in with, but allowed the counselors to pick her up and place her on the counter. She allowed all handling during her initial medical exam and was friendly. Reaction to assessor: Linx was by the back, alert with wide eyes, and begins breathing rapidly. Reaction when softly spoken to: Linx looks at the assessor, but her eyes soften and she starts to blink. Reaction to cage door opening: Linx remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Linx sniffs the assessor’s hand and remains in place for petting. She warms up slowly and lifts her butt when pet on her lower back, but will wrap her tail closely around her body. She leans in for petting and appears to appreciate chin rubs, but seems wary of the environment. Reaction to being picked up: Linx is a bit tense during pick up, but remains calm and nuzzles into the assessor’s arms. Behavior Determination: Experienced Linx tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
