***SAFE 04/23/16*** Poor RUSTY is scared in the shelter that will kill him if a FOSTER or ADOPTER isn’t found! This 5 year old cutie doesn’t look like he would hurt a fly, yet he’s rated RESCUE ONLY, a likely reason from the accusation of him “attacking”. Short is the story of the shelter, poking and prodding these poor cats and giving them rotten ratings when they react negatively! He’s going to need a New Hope RESCUE and YOU to save him! Contact a New Hope RESCUE and give RUSTY an equal opportunity to prove that he’s one great cat!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
The enrichment facilitator has been monitoring Rusty and reports that he was tense and easily startled when he first came in. He flinches when touched and tends to stay at the back of the kennel. As of now he currently allows petting briefly and is still very nervous. Reaction to assessor: Rusty is near the front of the kennel with ears flat and eyes focused on the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Rusty’s tail is curled up next to his body and remains motionless. Reaction to cage door opening: Rusty flinches when the door opens. Reaction to touch: Rusty remains motionless and lip licks with eyes fixated on the assessor’s hand. He allows petting on his head and is very tense. Rusty closes his eyes and slowly leans his head in for rubs. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Rusty tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his or her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
