POLAR – A1062321
Gone - 1-10-2016 Brooklyn
**GONE 01/10/16** Sweet POLAR was brought into the shelter after her former owner passed away, but that might just be her lucky break. This pretty girl is only 8 months old, but it’s clear her former owner was not taking the best care of her. With her EXPERIENCE rating, it’s possible that someone will make the decision to scoop her up into loving arms, have a vet figure out why she isn’t feeling her best, and turn things around for her. If that person FOSTERS her through a New Hope rescue, the rescue will pay the vet bills and her foster mom or dad can just concentrate on loving her to pieces. If someone adopts her outright, they will need to be willing to pay her medical bills. Either way, POLAR is almost certain to repay the kindness with unconditional love. Please advocate widely for POLAR, tonight!

01/08/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Polar does not come to front but remains neutral When spoken quietly: Polar does not come to front but remains neutral Reaction to door cage opening: Polar remains motionless tense in the corner of the cage Reaction to touch: Polar seems indifferent to my presence and touch Try picking cat up: Polar is tolerant of this type of handling but tense. Behavior Determination: Experience At the time of the assessment Polar was displaying fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Remains as I started to get closer but after a steady slow approach using soft voices she relaxed a little and I was able to pet her and interact with her in a limited way. I was also able to pick her up and although she was tense no fractious behavior was display. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
