MILTON – A1082085
Gone - 8-8-2016 Manhattan
**GONE 08/08/16**MILTON is a handsome soft male black and white cat who is 2 years old. He was found as a stray and brought into the finder’s home for a little while. He met the finder’s cat. He meowed to say hi, and enjoyed being pet. He rubbed against the finder’s leg. Sadly MILTON was brought to the shelter in hopes of a new home. He doesn’t have much time to find a new home because he will be killed tomorrow if he’s not rescued. MILTON was probably someone’s cat who either got lost or abandoned, and now his life is on the line! Poor MILTON doesn’t deserve to die! He’s YOUNG, FRIENDLY AND HANDSOME!! A PERFECT CAT! This lovey purrs while being held! MILTON would make a great cat for an experienced pet home! THIS SWEET TUXIE NEEDS YOU TO SAVE HIS LIFE TODAY!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Milton was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was described as friendly, affectionate, and relaxed with his finder. He would hide under the bed during the first hour in their home, but eventually ventured out of hiding on his own. When introduced to the finder’s cat, he would meow during the interaction, but the resident cat hissed at him. The finder reports he enjoys being petted and will brushed against their leg. He allowed the finder to trim his nails, and would sit and purr while being held. Reaction to assessor: Milton was resting upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Milton wakes and looks at the assessor with soft eyes. Reaction to cage door opening: Milton remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Milton sniffs the assessor’s hand, but quickly jerks his head back afterwards and squints his eyes. He may not like the smell of the latex gloves, so the assessor removed the glove. He still displays the same reaction when the glove was removed, but the smell may still be lingering on the assessor’s hand. He shifts away in an attempt to avoid contact, but allows gentle petting. During the interaction, he continues to shift away, his ears tilt sideways, and appears to be uncomfortable. Behavior Determination: Experience Milton tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents. Any future home with children should conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
