***SAFE 04/16/16 *** SENIOR GENT DUMPED FOR MOVING – MUFASA IS NOW FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE – CAN YOU BE HIS RESCUE ANGEL? MUFASA – a name we all know from the “Lion King” and given to a very stately looking cat indeed! Yet, MUFASA’s owner after 12 loyal years just betrayed his pet when he needed him the most. MUFASA had some issues with constipation and has a heart murmur – nothing which cannot be handled by vet care and diet. He also was found to possibly have some other issues but since the ACC vets are not rocket scientists, we should say that MUFASA needs a full evaluation by a COMPETENT vet after rescue. MUFASA’s owner said that he was friendly, outgoing and gentle with children. He was not fond of a husky dog that lived in the home. MUFASA was in pain from his digestive issues when he came in but still rocked an AVERAGE rating because he was friendly, allowed all handling, interacted with the assessor and loved petting. MUFASA is a golden kitty and he certainly deserves the love and care that his former owner didn’t give him. PLEASE ADOPT THIS OLDER BOY TODAY – HE IS ALREADY NEUTERED AND READY TO LEAVE THE SHELTER AS FAST AS YOU CAN GET HIM OUT! EMAIL THE HELP DESK AT [email protected] FOR RESCUE CONTACT INFO. SAVE MUFASA FROM WHAT COULD BE A TRAGIC SATURDAY AFTERNOON TOMORROW. ACT NOW!!!

04/15/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – AVERAGE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Mufasa lived primarily with adults, and is described as friendly, outgoing, and independent with a medium activity level. He plays gently with adults and children. He did not get along well with a Husky mix dog. He was tense at intake but allowed handling, and was easy to handle during his initial medical examination. Mufasa has shown a range of behaviors, social and affectionate when he arrived as well as during his behavior evaluation, though when Mufasa was clearly in pain due to his medical condition he was less tolerant of handling: growling when approached and biting at the handler’s hands when carried to the examination table. This behavior appears to be in response to pain, but potential adopters should be aware of this response. Reaction to assessor: Mufasa is resting in his kennel. Reaction to cage door opening: Looks at the assessor, body soft. Reaction to touch: Mufasa leans into the assessor’s hand and appreciates chin scratches. He eventually rests his head on the blanket and closes his eyes while the assessor scratches his other cheek. The assessor did not touch Mufasa on his back end or try to pick him up due to his medical condition. Placement determination: Average Mufasa interacts with the Assessor, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. He has no known history of behavioral problems. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
