ROXY – A1090303
Gone - 9-23-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 09/23/16*** CUTE ROXY IS GOOD WITH OTHER CATS BUT AFTER BEING DUMPED IN THE SHELTER SHE IS GOING TO DIE BECAUSE SHE IS AFRAID!! OK this makes no sense – “Finder found her living in her previous home” and was taking care of her for a week. Sadly this person, who said that ROXY had lived with 6 other female cats, brought this poor 6 year old girl to the ACC for whatever reason. ROXY is normally a friendly and easy going cat but the shelter environment is not a HOME. It freaked her out a bit and because she growled at the assessor, she was punished with a NEW HOPE rating and sent packing to tonight’s list. ROXY IS PERFECTLY HEALHTY!! SHE CAN’T POSSIBLY BE PUNISHED FOR A NORMAL REACTION IN THE SHELTER!! PLEASE BE ROXY’S HERO AND OFFER TO FOSTER OR ADOPT. SHE WILL BE FUREVER GRATEFUL AND REWARD YOU WITH MANY PURRS!! EMAIL [email protected] FOR RESCUE CONTACT INFO.

09/18/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
09/18/16 17:38 Profile: Basic Information: Roxy came into our care center as a stray. The person who brought her in found her living in her previous home and has since been taking care of her for the past week. She is a six year old, black, domestic medium hair cat with a white chest and white markings on her muzzle. Socialization The person who brought Roxy in informed us that she had lived in a home with six other female cats and she had been friendly with the other cats. Behavior During Intake: In her carrier Roxy was sniffing and licking her nose. The counselor opened up the carrier and approached her slowly and began to pet her lightly on the back. She was taken out of the carrier at which point she tried to run away. With the help of another counselor she was photographed and collared. She was given food but took no interest in the food. Once she was transported back into her carrier she seemed to relax a bit.

09/21/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
The former finder stated that Roxy had lived in a home with six other female cats and she had been friendly with the other cats. Reaction to assessor: Roxy looks tense, crouched position at the back when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Roxy remains at the back of the cage, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Roxy hisses then slowly retreats away from the assessor’s hand and began to growl in place. Placement determination: NH ONLY Roxy is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. She is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
