***SAFE 05/27/16*** HELP! Sweet PARKER is a 6-year-old cat whose face pleads for someone, somewhere, to make everything okay again. His ACC notes are a confusing mess, saying in one place that he was surrendered to the ACC because of “pet health,” and saying in another place that “no known health injuries or problems.” Elsewhere, it is stated that “he has litter box accidents and he is both pooping and peeing outside of the box; this has been occurring for 1 year to 3 and no vet has been seen for the issue,” and further down it talks about a pelvic fracture. Bottom line is, this guy needs OUT and needs out NOW! A competent vet will be able to tell what’s going on with him. The best case scenario is probably for Parker to be FOSTERED through a NEW HOPE rescue group, which is an arrangement where the rescue generally foots all reasonable medical expenses, and the foster owner concentrates on loving him to bits! He can be adopted by anyone who is willing to be firmly in his corner, and handle whatever medical expenses will put him right. In any event, Parker ONLY has you and he ONLY has tonight. Please advocate widely for this poor, poor boy, tonight!

Behavior Determination: Experience At the time of the assessment Parker was displaying fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Remains motionless as I started to get closer but after a steady slow approach using soft voices he relaxed a little. I was able to pet him and interact with him in a limited way.
