SANDY – A1078134
Safe - 6-24-2016 Brooklyn Rescue: Animalkind Please honor your pledges: http://www.animalkindny.com/makeadonation
**SAFE 06/24/16** HEARTBREAKING! She’s 9 years old, EMACIATED, and lived with another cat who was BULLYING her! But when poor, gaunt SANDY was too afraid to use the litter box because her mellow disposition was no match for the monster cat in the household, the people she trusted DUMPED her into the ACC and left her there to DIE! Yep, those people would have been told that death was a VERY REAL OUTCOME, but that was just effing fine with them. They only cared that Sandy would no longer be around to have accidents on their precious, precious things, because everyone knows that stuff is WAY more important than the love of a loyal cat, right? WRONG! These people and their other cat were TERRIBLE to poor, spayed SANDY, and tomorrow she is going to DIE because she lived with a crew of BULLIES! Do NOT let this sweet sweet girl be killed, without sedation, by the HEARTLESS ACC! Find a FOSTER OR ADOPTER to step up for Sandy, NOW!

06/21/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Sandy is shy around strangers and will take several minutes to warm up to new people. She lived with another cat and was described as being fearful because the other cat was aggressive towards her. Sandy has been having litter box issues for the past 6 months and was not taken to the vet for this issue. The owner states that she had 2 cats and only used one litter box. Sandy enjoys playing with stuffed toys and has a low activity level. Reaction to assessor: Sandy was alert at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Sandy curls up and starts to slow blink when spoken to softly. Reaction to cage door opening: Sandy remains motionless with eyes focused on the assessor. Reaction to touch: Sandy hisses upon approach and has a tense body when held. She lip licks, turns her head to the wall and has a stiff/ tense body when pet. Sandy’s previous owner reports that she was eliminating (urinating and defecating) outside the litter box, but we are unaware of what, if any, modification steps were taken to try and address this behavior. We cannot be sure whether this behavior will continue in a home environment, but we recommend that potential adopters be comfortable with management and modification techniques for elimination outside the litter box should this behavior continue in a home environment. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Sandy tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She 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.
