**SAFE 05/10/16** GORGEOUS HOUSE PANTHER NEEDS FURR-EVER HOME TONIGHT! Poitier is a sleek, black beauty! In her short year and 7 months, she has been dumped off at the ACC not once, but twice! She was adopted out a while back, and suddenly her most recent owners son “developed asthma” and poor Poitier is landed back in a cold cage! Check out her loving volunteer notes : “My heart breaks for pretty, well behaved Poitier, a young girl who comes from a home and is clearly feeling out of sorts amid the bustle of the cat adoption room. When I stopped by her cat condo yesterday to greet her, she was hanging back from me, not yet comfortable enough to accept petting yet communicating warmth and emotion with her eyes. She seemed to be telling me that she’s a good girl and doesn’t know why she’s here, and I don’t either. But I do know that her former family had great things to say about her: she’s good with kids, adores being brushed and held like a baby, and is affectionate and mellow. With time, she’ll warm up here at the Care Center. But she’ll truly blossom when she’s back in a loving household. Come meet our Poitier today.” Poitier is spayed and ready to go! This girl just needs a loving home, one that won’t betray her again! Can YOU show her what furr-ever love means? Advocate for her RIGHT NOW!

Basic information: Poitier is a one and a half year old, black and white, domestic short hair cat. Her former owner adopted her from right here at MACC. She was returned because her owner’s son developed asthama. Poitier was seen by a vet on May 15th of 2015. Socialization: This cat is pretty good with meeting new people but it might take her a few moments to get comfortable. She has been around children ages 8-16. Poitier is great with kids. She stays relaxed and playful. She is gentle with both adults and kids. She has never been around cats or dogs. Behavior History: This cat has never bitten another animal or human. She does like to scratch on the drapes and she does get nervous when people make to much noise or come running toward her. She has had issues with defacating outside of the box. That seems to have stopped recently. She is not a fan of baths. She does not like getting her nails trimmed. She loves getting brushed and held like a baby. For a new family to know: Her former owner describes her as friendly, affectionate, mellow and sometimes shy. Her activity level is low. She has been kept indoors only. She likes to sleep on her owner’s bed. Her litter box should be uncovered with clumping litter.

05/01/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Poitier’s previous owner reports she is pretty good with meeting new people, but it might take her a few moments to get comfortable. She has been around children ages 8-16 and does great with them. She is relaxed and playful, and plays gently with children and adults. She gets nervous when people make too much noise or come running towards her, but loves to get brushed and held like a baby. She has defecated outside her litter box before, but that has stopped. She was best described as friendly, affectionate, mellow, and sometimes shy with a low activity level. Reaction to assessor: Poitier was lying down by the back and lies flat on the ground. Reaction when softly spoken to: Poitier looks at the assessor with wide eyes, but blinks softly after. Reaction to cage door opening: Poitier remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Poitier was very tense and breathes rapidly, but she allows gentle petting. She warms up slightly and seems to appreciate attention, but she looks wary of the environment. Reaction to being picked up: Poitier is a bit tense, but allows handling. Behavior Determination: Experience Poitier tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
