ROSEY – A1085279
Safe - 8-21-2016 Brooklyn
***SAFE 08/21/16*** ROSEY IS FIV POSITIVE AND NEEDS A NEW HOPE RESCUE TO AID IN HER PULLING! ROSEY is a SPAYED, 12 year old. Brought in by her “caretaker”, as a STRAY! How awful of a person can one be to DUMP their aged cat with FIV at a HIGH KILL SHELTER that gets their jolly”s from killing healthy cats…much less than one with FIV! Then just to make it even harder, they slap her with a RESCUE ONLY rating because of her temperament. Of course she’s scared and has no idea what’s going on! FIV POSITIVE cats can live long, productive lives, AND live along side of NON-FIV POSITIVE kitties so that’s no excuse to overlook this girl! ROSEY needs you to contact a New Hope rescue and offer to FOSTER OR ADOPT!

08/13/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/13/16 13:43 Basic Information: Rosey is a female domestic short hair cat who was brought in as a stray. Socilaization: Around strangers Rosey is shy for a few days and plays gently with adults. Rosey has never been around children, other cats or dogs so it is unknown how she will react to being around them. Behavior: Rosey has never bitten/scratched another person or animal. Rosey has no behavior issues and will meow when riding in a car. Rosey’s previous caretaker did not attempt to give her a bath, trim her nails, or pick up/hold her so it is unknown how she will react to those events. Rosey enjoys being brushed and placed in a carrier. For a New Family to Know: Rosey is described as friendly, shy and quiet with a medium activity level. When at home Rosey likes to stay in her favorite spot and doesn’t play with toys. Rosey was kept mostly indoors and was fed both wet and dry food twice a day. Rosey is litterbox trained and used clumping litter with a vertical scratching post made of rough rope. Intake Behavior: Rosey was very stressed and fearful during her intake and avoided being touched by staff. Rosey became very tense when staff attempted to collar her and moved away from staff.

08/16/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Rosey does not come to front but remains neutral When spoken quietly: Rosey does not come to front but remains neutral Reaction to door cage opening: Rosey hisses at the assessor Reaction to touch: Rosey hisses, strikes and does not allows petting at all Try picking cat up: Did not attempt Behavior Determination: NewHope Rosey was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. Rosey seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment she was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. Rosey may require further investigation before placement in a home. She is extremely fearful and currently does not tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
