MISHU – A1091955
Gone - 10-10-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 10/10/16*** MISHU is a 4 year-old beauty who was dumped into the shelter system on account of a “child conflict.”That’s a pretty broad statement that could mean a lot of things. MISHU might be rather abrupt with kids, she might be afraid of kids not being gentle with her. Owners hardly need to pass a lie detector test when surrendering a cat, and anything goes in the ACC lobby. We do know that MISHU will die tomorrow if someone doesn’t open their heart and home. Please share MISHU far and wide, and contact a New Hope rescue if you have a place for her in your own home, or would be willing to foster. It has to happen for MISHU tonight.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Mishu is friendly around strangers and enjoys rubbing against their legs. She lived with a 12 year old child and would occasionally get overstimulated then would scratch the child. Her owner said she doesn’t mind being picked up or placed in a carrier. She scratches on the furniture occasionally and tends to get overstimulated and may scratch suddenly. Her owner says she has a medium activity level and usually spends her time sunbathing or playing with toy balls. Reaction to assessor: Mishu was relaxed at the back of the kennel grooming herself. Reaction when softly spoken to: Mishu is curious and comes forward to greet the assessor. She sniffs the assessor then started to eat her dry food. Reaction to cage door opening: Mishu lip licks and becomes alert. Reaction to touch: Mishu sniffs the assessor’s hand, leans in for attention and allows petting all over. She will occasionally lip lick when she head butts the assessor and her tail starts to sway back and forth the more you interact with her. After a couple of soft passes she whipped around quickly and tried to swat. She pauses for a moment; lip licks then goes back to soliciting attention. Mishu is social and affectionate but appears to be easily overstimulated. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Mishu becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Mishu solicits attention and tolerates petting but may be assertively demanding of attention or may play roughly. Due to her becoming overstimulated then swatting we feel that this cat will do best in a home without children.
