**SAFE 01/23/16*** Poor ORION! He’s a scared 8 month old kitten that’s not doing well in the shelter. No one can blame the already NEUTERED guy….he’s going to face death unless someone steps up and FOSTERS or ADOPTS him by noon tomorrow! A volunteer had this to say – “Orion is a handsome young man who will look at you so lovingly and is fine with being petted,but he’s feeling a bit tense. This young boy has so much happiness to offer,and in the home of experienced cat parents, all of what he has to offer will certainly shine through.” ORION needs a family with EXPERIENCE and no children, he wants to be the BABY! Offer to FOSTER or ADOPT this sweet baby and he will love you more than all the STARS in the sky!

01/03/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
01/03/16 11:25 Profile wasn’t left due to cat being stray. Behavior During Intake: Leo was brought into the facility in a cat carrier provided by the finder. Upon arrival Leo was sitting at the back of the carrier and his body was slightly tense. When I reached in to see if he would allow handling Leo remained still. I then rubbed his head a few times as he watched kept his eye’s on me. I was able to scan and handle Leo with no issues at the time of intake.

01/21/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Orion is not thriving in the shelter environment, and is allowing only limited interaction. When approached Orion crouches, retreats, and hisses. He does not relax with attention and at times does not allow any handling at all. Due to his fearful behavior we are recommending a home without children. Due to Orion’s stress levels in this kennel environment, we recommend that he move into a stable home environment as quickly as possible. 1/5 eval: Orion came to the shelter as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment. Upon intake, Orion was nervous but allowed handling. Reaction to assessor: Orion is sitting, midcage, as assessor approaches. Reaction when softly spoken to: Orion looks at the assessor, ears flatten. Reaction to cage door opening: Orion retreats to the back of his cage. Reaction to touch: Orion tenses, but tolerates petting. Reaction to pick up: Orion is tense during this type of handling. Placement Determination: Experience Orion retreats from the assessor and appears nervous, but allows handling. Orion is exhibiting behavior suited to experienced cat parents who can allow him proper adjustment time.
