RAY – A1088601
Safe - 9-12-2016 Brooklyn
*** SAFE 09/12/16 *** NICE GUY RAY!!…RAY is an outdoor cat who knew his finders for 3 years. They fed him and let their children go near him and even gave him a bath….But after 3 years of interacting with an essentially friendly cat, they did the unthinkable and trapped RAY & friend JACKIE (not listed) and dumped them at the ACC. RAY, of course, got a NEW HOPE rating right off the bat because he was a hesitant, outdoor cat not trapped in a noisy, chaotic environment in a cage….RAY DOESN’T DESERVE ANY OF THIS….IF YOU CAN HELP HIM, PLEASE CONTACT A NEW HOPE RESCUE TONIGHT!! Email the HELP DESK, if you need assistance finding a NEW HOPE rescue. SAVE RAY NOW!!

The finder has to children, ages 9 & 11 and stated Ray would lay by both children but would run away if they tried to pet him. He’s been around other cats and would chase them around and swat at them. Reaction to assessor: Ray was at the back of the kennel lying down in a loaf position. Reaction when softly spoken to: Ray has wide eyes focused on all movements and curls up tight when spoken to softly. Reaction to cage door opening: Ray remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Ray arches his back with his ears bent flat and starts hissing at the assessor. He swats when the assessor extends his hand out then quickly shifts away from contact. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Ray is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat, 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.
