NUNU – A1083182
Safe - 8-13-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Mary's Kitty Korner Please honor your pledges: http://www.maryskittykorner.org/
***SAFE 08/13/16*** NUNU is a 3-year-old PERFECT BOY who wound up at the ACC because the person who used to own him, probably never wanted him in the first place. Yes, NUNU was GIFTED into that home, and that person NEVER took him to a vet in all that time. Meanwhile, NUNU was a rock star and even wanted to make friends with the neighbors’ dog! HOW SWEET IS THAT?! Despite being an absolute dreamboat, his former owner left him with the ACC when it was easier to move to a “no pets allowed” place, rather than spend the extra few moments of effort it would have taken to find a place NUNU would have been welcome. Thanks to that decision, and the ineptitude of the ACC, NUNU will be killed tomorrow unless a foster/adopter steps up for him tonight!

07/29/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/29/16 18:59 Basic Info: Nunu A1083182 is a 3yr old male white & black DSH feline who was given to the owner as a gift from a friend at 6wks old & is being surrendered due to the owner moving to where pets aren’t allowed. Nunu was never seen by a vet and currently has no known health issues/injuries. Socialization: Around strangers Nunu is shy for a few minutes or friendly/outgoing. He’s spent time with young children and was gentle, relaxed & affectionate with them and the adult in the home. Nunu wanted to make friends with the neighbor’s dog but the dog didn’t seem to like Nunu and would try to “attack” him. Nunu hasn’t bitten/scratched any person or animal. Behavior: Nunu hasn’t been on a car ride. He isn’t bothered by the following: having his nails trimmed, being picked up/held or with being placed into a carrier. He hasn’t been given a bath since he was a kitten nor has he been disturbed while sleeping/resting. For a New Family to Know: Nunu is described as friendly, playful, confident, independent & quiet with a low-medium activity level. When the owner is home Nunu follows them around sometimes. He enjoys ball & mouse toys at times and is an indoor only cat that sleeps around the home. Nunu eats dry & wet Friskies 1-3x a day. He is uncovered litter box trained with clumping litter within. He has a scratching post that he doesn’t always use and scratches on a wooden door panel. Intake Behavior: Nunu allowed all handling. He allowed to be scanned (-), taken pictures of and I didn’t have his collar made yet so he was placed into a kennel with ease. After being in his cage for a few minutes and perhaps being around other cats NuNu became upset and didn’t allow us to collar him.

08/02/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Nunu’s previous owner reports he is shy around some strangers for a few minutes and is friendly and outgoing with others. He has spent time with young children and was gentle, relaxed, and affectionate with them. He was reported to try to be friends with the neighbor’s dog, but the dog didn’t appear to reciprocate. He was described as friendly, playful, confident, independent, and quiet with a low-medium activity level. Reaction to assessor: Nunu was calm and relaxed, but is crouched over when approached. Reaction when softly spoken to: curls: Nunu comes forward and sniffs around, and then lip licks. Reaction to cage door opening: Nunu becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Nunu slowly retreats to the back, but sniffs the assessor’s hand. He shifts away from the assessor’s hand and offers a quick meow. He allows brief touch on his head, but shifts away and focuses on the hand, lifting his paw and gently patting it without nails. He appears unsure, and doesn’t seem to appreciate touch at that moment. Behavior Determination: Experience Nunu tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents. Any future home with children should conduct a thorough interaction before adopting.
