SASSY – A1090841
Gone - 9-29-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 09/29/16*** SASSY DUMPED FOR HER “BEHAVIOR!!” But that needs to be examined because it’s very likely that an owner who wants to dump a pet, can use any excuse to lie–to wipe their own guilty conscience! SASSY is 6, SPAYED and READY to get out of here! She was probably not wanted to begin with because she was given as a gift to the owner….NOT A BRIGHT IDEA!!! So now this sweet girl needs a New Hope rescue to aid in her rescue and a person who is willing to take a chance on this “fierce” girl! Contact a New Hope rescue and give SASSY the chance that her previous owner never did!!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sassy’s previous owner reports she has never been around children. She has lived in a home with one adult and was aloof and mellow. She was reported to hiss and hide when strangers visited, but after a few days with a new person she will approach them and sniff them. She was described as mellow, aloof, and pushy. She hides under the bed or loungers alone in the bedroom. She does not care much for toys and enjoys being on her own. She rarely solicits attention and does have a history of scratching, however details on her previous incidents, including trigger, warning signs, and severity are unknown. Reaction to assessor: Sassy was resting, but becomes alert upon approach and opens her eyes slightly. Reaction when softly spoken to: Sassy looks at the assessor with dilated eyes and sniffs around in place. Reaction to cage door opening: Sassy becomes stiff and alert. Reaction to touch: Sassy shifts away to the back and focuses on the assessor’s hand. She allows brief touch, but flinches and shifts away from contact. She wraps her tail closely against her body and continues to shift away from petting. She does not relax until the assessor removes their hand away. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Sassy tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may need time to warm up to 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.
