LUCY – A1068794
Safe - 4-4-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Happy Homes Please honor your pledges: http://www.happyhomesinc.org/
**SAFE 04/04/16** NEW HOPE rescue is needed for this RARE ORANGE GIRL, tonight! LUCY is only 10 months old, and unfortunately during her short life, she has been stuffed into a carrier with a group of other cats. The whole group was ABANDONED before being brought to the shelter…and of course, that makes a terrible, stressful introduction to the ACC. Her NEW HOPE rating reflects the enormous emotional pressure she has been facing, and underscores her need for a loving foster/adoptive home who will give her the time she needs to chill out. A NEW HOPE rescue is only going to pull Lucy once they have a legitimate foster/adopter who has completed an application, so please find such a hero tonight!

04/01/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Lucy came into the care center as a stray so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. At intake Lucy was tense and at times tried to flee, but she tolerated handling. She was also tolerant during her initial medical examination, though tense and nervous. When interacting with our enrichment facilitator, Lucy was tense, growled when the cage door was opened, sniffed at the facilitator’s hand, then hissed and retreated. The following day she was hiding at the back of the cage, pupils dilated. She hissed and retreated when reached for. At the time of the behavior evaluation, Lucy was hiding in a box and could not be coaxed out. Reaction to assessor: Lucy is hiding in a cardboard box. She hisses immediately upon being approached. Reaction to cage door opening: Lucy retreats further into the box and hisses again. Reaction to touch: Due to Lucy’s stress level and clear discomfort with human interaction, the assessment was ended without attempting to touch Lucy. Placement determination: New Hope Only Lucy has tolerated minimal touch and interaction in the care center. Her level of socialization is unknown and she will likely need time to warm up to her new home and build confidence and comfort around her human caretakers. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
