MS.S – A1067241
Safe - 3-27-2016 Brooklyn Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 03/27/16 *** MS. S is a sleek and svelte oriental mix of a girl, and sadly, some would see her as just another black cat. Her former ‘owner’ turned her in due to ‘personal problems’ and ‘her behavior,’ never bothering to get MS. S spayed, and then blaming the behavior of a cat during her heat cycle on her, as if she could take that into her own paws and go out and book a spay appointment. Un-spayed female cats can often have hormonal mood swings as the urge to mate becomes obsessive, but other times MS. S. is known to have been a ‘sweetheart’ and certainly a lovely girl WHO HAS LIVED WITH OTHER CATS!!!! Please, don’t let a former ‘owner’ who simply dumped this poor girl, along with 2 other housemates dictate the death sentence she so ruthlessly abandoned this cat to. MS. S deserves better than that, don’t you think? She’s a little girl who deserves a kind, responsible and loving home where she can sleep on the bed and be cherished and cared for forever…won’t you do that for her!?

03/14/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Ms. S’s previous owner reports she is shy and will hide from strangers. She will observe them from a distance and if she does approach them, she will just sniff. She is gentle with her owner, but isn’t playful with those she doesn’t know. She has lived with two other cats and is tolerant of them, but has also swat, hissed, and growled at them. She was described as being independent and is a sweet heart. She has a low activity level and likes to be petted. Please be advised that Ms. S seems to be in heat at the time of assessment, and the behavior presented at the time of evaluation may differ when the heat cycle is complete due to a change in hormonal balance. Reaction to Assessor: Ms. S chirps upon approach and is calm, relaxed, and friendly. Reaction when softly spoken to: Ms. S chirps again and then she rubs on the cage door and rolls over. Reaction to cage door opening: Ms. S remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Ms. S chirps, head-butts, and begins to purr. She lifts her butt when pet on her lower back and remains in place for all petting while her tail sways from side to side. Reaction to being picked up: Ms. S remains calm and allows handling. Placement Determination: Experience Ms. S interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Although she is displaying behaviors that are appropriate for cat parents with an average amount of experience, due to the information provided by her previous owner we recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents who will allow her time to warm up to her new environment at her own pace. The previous owner also reported she struggled with acclimating to the resident cats, so we also recommend either a one-cat home or a home with adopters experienced with introducing new cats slowly and gradually over a long period of time.
