PHAROAH – A1083567
Gone - 8-2-2016 Manhattan
**GONE 08/02/16** PHARAOH’S FORMER OWNER SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH ANIMAL CRUELTY-they SURRENDERED THIS POOR BOY “FOR NOT ACTING RIGHT!” Now PHARAOH needs you to offer to save him by working with a rescue and offering to foster him. PHARAOH has a condition called HEPATIC LIPADOSIS which is usually caused by a cat not eating for a long length of time and is remedied by a feeding tube that most cats respond well to. In any case this handsome boy isn’t feeling well and really needs to see a vet RIGHT AWAY!!! Now, the ACC has many vets on staff who COULD do this but they won’t, and would rather kill this innocent animal rather than try to help him get well by taking care of him medically. Why would you want to help this boy? Well, look at his face.Don’t you think he deserves to be loved and cared about, and have it proven to him that someone really does care about him, not just ignores him and dumps him off to be killed when they think “he’s not acting right.” Prove that he deserves to be loved and cared about by offering to save his life by fostering him!!! SAVE PHARAOH NOW!!!

07/31/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
07/31/16 18:00 Pharoah was surrendered by owners due to pet health issues. Previous owner stated that he was a calm cat that liked to be pet. At the ACC, Pharoah was quiet. He would not get out of his carrier. He sniffed food that counselors put in his carrier, but did not try to eat it. He licked his nose a little when counselor removed the top of his carrier, but allowed counselor to collar him. He appeared very lethargic. He did not attempted to stand up or react to counselor touching him very much, but would slow blink at the counselor. When the lid was put back on his carrier he licked his food a single time and then laid back down.

08/01/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Pharoah was surrendered to the care center by his previous owner, though we have minimal information available about his behavior in his previous home. He is reported to be calm and to enjoy being pet. Pharoah has allowed handling in the care center, though he may growl and grumble when being handled and does become agitated with extended handling during the veterinary examination. He allows touch and pick up, but needs a slow and careful approach. Placement determination: Experienced Pharoah tolerates some attention and petting but appears to be stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. Due to his age, condition, and the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet, adult-only home.
