*** SAFE 10/15/16*** 7 MONTH OLD MOMMY WAS DUMPED AT THE SHELTER FOR PERFECTLY NORMAL CAT BEHAVIOR – NOW SHE WILL DIE BECAUSE SHE CAUGHT A COLD!! Some people should not have pets – period! MOMMY was dumped at the ACC because her owner termed her “destructive”. What was her crime? She knocked over items off the counter and scratched the laundry hamper. Oh, and they said she liked to sleep in high places……DUH…anyone who knows cat behavior would laugh at this excuse. This beautiful snow white KITTEN is only behaving in a normal way. She was said to be very friendly, playful, and affectionate and loves to play with cat toys. Gee what a surprise….this owner should have gotten a stuffed animal instead. MOMMY is a super cat but nervous in the shelter so they gave her a good EXPERIENCE rating.

Reaction when softly spoken to: Mommy is playful, demanding of attention and reaches out towards the assessor with paws. Reaction to cage door opening: Mommy is calm and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Mommy rubs up against the assessor, purrs softly and allows petting all over her body. She appreciates attention, rolls around playfully and seems to get aroused easily. If she’s rubbed on her lower back for a while she’ll whip around and nip but she does it with slight pressure. Reaction to being picked up: Mommy is calm, relaxed, has a soft body when held and continues to purr in the assessor’s arms. Behavior Determination: Experience Mommy may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents and any future home with children conduct a thorough interaction.
