**SAFE 05/10/16** NSAL AND ACC FAIL! Meet MICKEY, a terrified NEUTERED boy who was abandoned by a former owner who decided they were “allergic” to him, back on May 5th. A scan of Mickey’s shelter notes reveals what’s likely to be the real issue that person was “allergic” to: Mickey is said to have some urinary issues and that person probably didn’t want to deal with it. NSAL is famous for not taking their former pets back and the ACC, being an open-admission kill factory, is famous for making cats go away forever. Interesting to note that the former owner is supposed to have gotten Mickey in 2009, but the ACC (in it’s infinite wisdom) did the math and decided this cat was one year old. Nothing adds up right for MICKEY, and that has got to change right now! Please find a foster/adopter who will work with a NEW HOPE RESCUE to save MICKEY, tonight!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Mickey is fearful around children and has not been introduced to other cats or dogs. He’s been having litter box issues for about a year and has been seen by a veterinarian for this issue. This happens when he wants attention, food and water. He enjoys waiting for his owners to come home and loves playing with toy balls and string. Mickey would hiss when being picked up or when placed in a carrier. Reaction to assessor: Mickey was relaxed, layed out on his blanket. His ears perked up and makes eye contact with the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Mickey lip licks then rolls over on his side. Reaction to cage door opening: Mickey remains neutral. Reaction to touch: Mickey tolerates petting on his head and leans in for attention. When touched along his body he whips around, hisses then tries to bite the assessor. Mickey’s previous owners report that he was eliminating (urinating and defecating) outside the litter box for about a year. Mickey was seen by a veterinarian and has no known medical issues. We advise potential adopters to be aware that this behavior may continue in a home environment, and that they be comfortable with management and modification techniques for this behavioral challenge. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Mickey is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He allows limited contact before trying to bite the assessor. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
