***SAFE 10/25/16***GOOD GOLLY MISS MOLLY NEEDS YOU! Meet beautiful three year old grey and white tabby, Molly who is purrfectly healthy and who lived with her former family since she was a kitten. Apparently, the owner’s child developed really bad allergies and poor Molly got dumped at the kill happy shelter rather than rehomed with friends or relatives. At home, Molly was well-mannered, enjoying the company of the child and following family members around. But of course, at the shelter, poor Molly is extremely scared and who can blame her? Her fear is earning her a spot on tonight’s at risk list and she is in desperate need of her rescue angel–that special someone who knows that this is really a sweet little girl who just needs to decompress from being at the shelter. Please open your heart and home to this great gal by offering to foster or adopt. Transportation is available. Email our help desk and we will help you be Molly’s hero–[email protected] Molly only has tonight. We are her only hope. Don’t let her down!!!

10/10/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
10/10/16 16:57 BASICS: Molly is a three year old gray tabby cat. She is approximately three years old and has been in her owner’s care since she was a kitten. She was brought in because her owner’s child started to develop really bad allergies to the cat dander. SOCIALIZATION: Around strangers Molly can be a little timid. When new people visit the home she may be interested for a bit but will then go back to her room. When she starts to feel more comfortable she may allow the person to handle her. She had shared her home with a four year old and had enjoyed being around the child. She would often be found seated by the child’s side and would allow him to handle her. She has not been around other cats so her behavior around them remains unknown. There had been an instance in which a neighbor’s dog had gone running into the apartment. Upon seeing the dog Molly had puffed up her hair and body but did not hiss or approach the dog. BEHAVIOR: She uses her litterbox and does not have accidents outside the box. She will from time to time scratch the couch which is made out of fabric. When her owner had attempted to give her a bath she had not seemed to enjoy it. Similarly if the owner attempts to brush her coat she wil try to get away. She is not fond of being in a carrier but had allowed the toddler to pick her up and hold her in his arms. FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW: Her owner describes her as an independent cat of high energy. Some of her favorite play-time activities had included running around the home and chasing after the laser pointer. Her favorite toys to play with on her own include balls that have the bell and toy mice. She had been a mostly indoor cat but had enjoyed going out on the balcony when her owner’s had been home to supervise her. She has a tendency to follow the family member’s around the home and occupying the same general space as them. Her favorite place to sleep had been in the child’s room but due to the child’s allergies had started getting used to sleeping on the couch. She had a covered litterbox and crystal litter. BEHAVIOR DURING INTAKE: During her intake Molly appeared a bit tense and nervous. The counselor gave her some time to accilmate at which point she allowed handling. She was given food but did not appear all that interested in it. Finally she slowly walked back into the carrier. When the counselor shut the door she seemed a bit agitated and hissed. However after a bit she settled down.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Former owner stated around strangers Molly can be a little timid. When new people visit the home she may be interested for a bit, but will then go back to her room. When she starts to feel more comfortable she may allow the person to handle her. She had shared her home with a four year old and had enjoyed being around the child. She would often be found seated by the child’s side and would allow him to handle her. She has not been around other cats so her behavior around them remains unknown. Also, described her as an independent cat with high energy. Reaction to assessor: Molly looked neutral, sitting upright on her cage bedding when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Molly becomes alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Molly seems conflicted with the touch at first she batted the assessor’s hand then slowly leans into the pets however she becomes agitated with the stroke and hissed/swatted to stop the interaction. Placement determination: NH ONLY Initially Molly solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to hiss and swat at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. 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 Molly becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
