*** SAFE 10/25/16 *** MAX NEEDS A LOVING TOUCH!! MAX’s people decided they had Personal Problems and 9 year old MAX got dumped at the shelter. And the ACC added that info for MAX was limited due to a language barrier…..MAX lived as a solo cat with no other animals and no children. He warmed up slowly to the assessor but was tense about being touched on his body and moved slowly. Which would suggest a possible physical issue that would need to be checked by a vet….MAX is a hefty guy at 16 lbs. WHAT HE NEEDS IS SOME TIME AND TLC SO THAT HE FEELS COMFORTABLE….And the ACC is certainly not going to give him that….PLEASE HELP THIS PLUS SIZE GUY FIND THE RIGHT HOME TONIGHT!! He’s publicly adoptable or can be reserved through a rescue!! MAKE MAX’S NIGHT!!

10/19/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Max lived with adults and has never been around children before. He’s never been around other animals and he used an open litter box at home. Reaction to assessor: Max was lying down at the front of the kennel and slowly leans forward when the assessor approaches. Reaction when softly spoken to: Max doesn’t get up but remains calm at the front. Reaction to cage door opening: Max remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Max sniffs the assessor’s hand and allows petting and gentle rubs on his head. He takes some time but will eventually leans in for rubs and gave the assessor gentle head butts. His movements are slow and he seems to get uncomfortable when touched along his body. He whipped around and hissed then slowly turned his head away. Behavior Determination: Experience No Children Max 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.
