Safe - 8-9-2016 Staten Island Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
**SAFE 08/09/16**At 3 years old, Life is not going has Science expected it would be for her. Science was brought into the ACC as a stray so not much is known about her past. The person who found her said Science doesn’t mind being petted but will flee if there is too much interaction. Sadly, Science did not get much better at the shelter. But do you blame her? Her life has been turned completely upside down and she doesn’t know who to trust. Science has alot of competition tonight so she needs all the help she can get. Help Science find out there are good people in the world, help her find a new home. But don’t waste any time, tomorrow will come fast.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Science came to the shelter as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment. Upon intake, Science was not handled. Reaction to assessor: Science is hiding in her den as I approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Science looks at the assessor with wide eyes, ears flat. Reaction to cage door opening: Science is tense. Reaction to touch: Science moves away to avoid being touched, but allows limited petting. Placement Determination: Experience No Child Science does not approach the assessor and appears fearful, but allows some handling.
