PRECIOUS – A1079691
Gone - 7-7-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 07/07/16*** SENIOR PRECIOUS LOSES HOME!! Her people decided to move and decided a great place for their senior cat to find a new home was the local kill shelter. PRECIOUS is 14 years young and a little on the fearful side, especially at this point. She used to sleep on her owners’ beds and now she is in a cubby amidst other frightened cats. The most the ACC is doing for her is poking her with a plastic hand and giving her a NEW HOPE rating. Her former life has totally faded away and the ACC expects her to not react to this. In addition, they’ve thrown her on a list with 40 other cats…..SAVE A SENIOR TONIGHT! PRECIOUS deserves a loving home for the rest of her life, not a needle at noon tomorrow!! If you need assistance contacting a NEW HOPE rescue, email [email protected]

Reaction when softly spoken to: Precious starts to breathe rapidly and looks around at her surroundings. Reaction to cage door opening: Precious becomes stiff and alert, and crouches over. Reaction to touch: Precious focuses on the assessor’s hand, but inches forward to sniff it. She attempts to shift away to avoid touch. She retreats to the back and lifts her paw to prepare to swat. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Precious is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
