ROWAN – A1066342
Safe - 3-7-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
*** SAFE 03/07/16 *** COMPELLING! Look closely at ROWAN’s photos and what sticks out? Her vulnerability? Her fear? Her hopelessness at being in the shelter and not feeling her best? Next, read her medical notes. This spayed lady is FELV+, she has a heart murmur, she has puncture wounds; this poor cat has been through the wringer. Look again at her photo and imagine those eyes filled with love, imagine the tension and fear gone from her posture. ROWAN is deserving of love, she is capable of being an EXCELLENT COMPANION, and all it takes is one kind heart who says “Yes” to foster/adoption. Please share her story, please pledge toward her care, and please FOSTER/ADOPT this most deserving girl, tonight!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Rowan looks neutral in her cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Rowan remains lying down on her cage bedding, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Rowan slowly leans into the assessor’s hand and appreciates petting on the head and body. However, after a few strokes she becomes agitated with touch then hisses and began to low tail flick in place. Placement determination: Experience / nochild Initially Rowan solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to hiss and low tail flick at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Rowan becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
