MYLO – A1087177
Gone - 8-30-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 08/30/16*** HANDSOME TUX MYLO WAS BOOTED OUT OF HIS HOME BY HIS OWNER’S PARENTS – NOW THIS HEALTHY CAT NEEDS A HERO!! MYLO was given to his owner as a kitten. He is now 4 years old. For some reason, this owner lived with parents who suddenly decided they no longer want a pet in the home. MYLO liked to follow his owner around and play with him. He was not fond of strangers that came to visit – nor was he fond of a 2 year old either. MYLO needs someone who has some cat whispering talents to help him decompress from the traumatic shelter experience and adjust to a new home. MYLO is NEW HOPE rated so you will need to use a rescue to save him. But MYLO is definitely a character and once out of the scary shelter, he will be a totally different cat!

Reaction to touch: Mylo focuses on the assessor’s hand from the opening and does not allow touch; he hisses and spits, and then starts to growl. Placement Determination: New Hope Only Mylo 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. He may have a known history of behavioral issues that need to be addressed.
