***SAFE 05/03/16*** PRINCE THE PANTHER IS IN SEARCH OF A NEW HOME TO RULE TONIGHT!!…PRINCE was treated very well by his former subjects…when he began to eliminate outside his litterbox, was he whisked off to a vet?? No, he was abandoned in the dungeons of the ACC!! PRINCE is only 2 and he is already NEUTERED…..PRINCE has a NEW HOPE rating and needs to be pulled by rescue. He could use a loving foster who could offer him the socialization that his family ignored. Some time and patience will help PRINCE to feel more grounded and secure.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Prince is shy around strangers and could take days to warm up to them. He has never been around children and very fearful around other cats resulting in him hissing and retreating. Prince will engage in somewhat rough play with adults and can nip but never has broken skin. He becomes fearful and will hiss when placed in a carrier. Reaction to assessor: Prince has wide eyes and is laying on his blanket near the front of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Prince is curious and leans forward. Reaction to cage door opening: Prince retreats to the back with his tail curled at his side. Reaction to touch: Prince shifts away and leans his head back when attempting to make contact. He raises his paw up and starts hissing as you approach. Prince previous owner reports that he was eliminating (defecating) outside the litter box, but we are unaware of what, if any, modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a different home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litter box should this behavior continue in a home environment. We also recommend that Prince be provided with numerous litter boxes throughout the house as he adjusts to his new living space. The extra boxes can be removed as he learns the space and successfully defecates in his main litter box. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Prince is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He raises his paw as a warning 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.
