***SAFE 10/21/16*** IT’S JUST AMAZING HOW SOME OF THESE OWNER’S ARE STRICKEN BY LIGHTING! MOON’S previous owner carried him into the ACC. Lounging on the owner’s shoulder, poor MOON never even saw the DUMP coming! Due to landlord rules about not allowing cats is the reason…but it could have been corrected! At the very least, bring the poor guy to a shelter that won’t kill him! MOON seemed OK with the assessor until he was put in a cage! At that point MOON voiced his displeasure for being locked up like a common criminal! And for that reason the ACC has made him RESCUE ONLY! HE NEEDS YOU AND A NEW HOPE RESCUE TO SAVE HIS LIFE!

10/18/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Moon’s previous owner reports he is shy around strangers, but gets used to their presence after a while. He would not usually solicit attention from them, however. He has been in a home with a child and plays well with the child, but can sometimes play roughly and use his claws. The owner says he only allows the owner to pick him up. He has a high energy level at home and tends to follow the owner around. Reaction to assessor: Moon focuses on the assessor and becomes stiff and alert. Reaction when softly spoken to: Moon meows and whines, still focusing on the assessor with dilated eyes. Reaction to cage door opening: Moon crouches over and hisses. Reaction to touch: Moon does not allow touch; he hisses and strikes when petting was attempted. He starts to yowl and growl afterwards. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Moon is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment, and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
