Safe - 7-11-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 07/11/16*** ONE WOULD HOPE THAT THE MORON THAT WAS MISSY’S PREVIOUS OWNER, DIES A HORRIBLE DEATH! This is just unbelievable… her former owner used her to kill mice, “and didn’t need her anymore… And thinks she’s too shy and doesn’t want to take her to the vet!” This is just plain frankly speaking… MISSY had been kicking here rear end after she did her bowel movement and wiping it on furniture. OK. One can only say to that, ” GOOD for MISSY!” After the intolerable wat this 1 and a half year old has been surrendered, MISSY’S PREVIOUS owner deserves alot more than that! MISSY is scared, with good reason and will need EXPERIENCED pet parents with no kids! PLEASE give this already SPAYED girl a happy ending and FOSTER OR ADOPT her today!

07/01/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/01/16 14:05 BASIC INFO Missy is a young adult female DSH cat. Her owner took her in from a family member 1 year ago. She had killed the mice in the home and they didn’t need her anymore. She was surrendered to us because her owner thinks she’s too shy and because she doesn’t have time to take her to the vet for her medical issue. Missy has been licking her anus and wiping it on the couch, floor, and blankets after defecating for the past 6 months. SOCIALIZATION Missy stays to herself. When people approach, she hisses. She bats them (without her nails) if they pet her. She sometimes approaches her family and meows and rolls around, but they don’t pet her because they think she will hiss. Missy lived with 2 other adult female cats. She hissed at them when they walked by her. She would sit in front of their food and hiss when the other cats approached. A small dog visited and she hid under the bed. Missy hasn’t bit/scratched anyone. BEHAVIOR Missy is nervous on the bus. Her family didn’t handle her because they thought she would hiss at them. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW Missy’s family describes her as shy, independent, talkative, and low energy. She lived inside and ate dry cat food. She drank water by scooping it up and licking it out of her paw. She’s littertrained, used a hooded litterbox with clumping litter, and didn’t have accidents. She scratched a chair. INTAKE Missy hissed while I opened her carrier. She walked onto the counter and had a soft body. She rubbed her head against the scanner while I scanned her (-). She head butted her carrier too. He had dilated pupils. She walked into a new carrier and then hissed.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Missy’s previous owner reports she mostly stays to herself and hisses when people approach her. She bats them without nails if they pet her. She approaches her family sometimes and meows and rolls around, but they were hesitant to pet her because they thought she would hiss. She lived with two other female cats and hissed at them when they walked by her. When a small dog visited them home, she hid under the bed. She was described as shy, independent, and talkative with a low energy level. Reaction to assessor: Missy was facing the back wall upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Missy’s ears tilt sideways, and then she turns around and looks at the assessor. She gets up, comes to the front, sniffs around, and leans her head on the cage door afterwards. Reaction to cage door opening: Missy remains calm and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Missy sniffs the assessor’s hand and leans her head on it. She will lean in for petting, start to knead, and seems to appreciate petting, however she becomes slightly tense at times during the interaction, and will pause to look at the assessor’s hand. When the assessor stops petting her, she will lean in for petting once again. Her tail swivels throughout the interaction, seeming overstimulated, but Missy does not display any further reaction. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Missy solicits attention and tolerates petting, but becomes tense randomly during the interaction and may be 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 Missy 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. 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.
