***SAFE 08/19/16***SWEET BUT SCARED SEYMORA NEEDS NEW “LEASH” ON LIFE–BE HER RESCUE ANGEL! Sad sigh! Six year old Seymora almost had her happy ending! She was brought in by the finder and had her spayed and eartipped. Their intention was to keep her since she was friendly and allowed to be picked up and petted. Unfortunately, she tested positive for FIV and so they decided not to keep her. Instead of bringing her inside the house, they decided to bring her to the kill happy shelter where she is one of 52 precious lives in peril. Used to living outdoors, she is naturally not thriving being in the shelter environment. But Seymora is a good girl who lived peacefully and was friendly in her finder’s household for three weeks. Therefore, we know she would thrive once out of the shelter environment. Please don’t let FIV be a death sentence for Seymora. She can live a happy and long life with other FIV positive and negative kitties. Please be that kind, patient purrson to give this girl a chance to live. Reserve her online or contact a NH rescue who can help with transportation. Email our help [email protected] and we will help you be Seymora’s hero. Seymora only has tonight. We are her only hope. Don’t let her down!!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Seymora was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. Her finder reports she has been by their house for the last three weeks and would come by their front steps, rubbing against their legs and allowing petting. They were able to pick her up without issues and easily placed her inside a carrier. However, upon intake, Seymora started growling and swatting from inside the carrier. She resisted handling during her initial medical exam, and displayed distance-increasing behaviors to avoid handling. Reaction to assessor: Seymora becomes stiff and alert when approached. Reaction when softly spoken to: Seymora focuses on the assessor and her ears tilt sideways. Reaction to cage door opening: Seymora becomes tense and shifts her weight slightly to the back. Reaction to touch: Seymora becomes stiff, but sniffs the assessor’s hand when extended towards her slowly. She accepts petting on her head with a very slow approach, but her ears bend flat against her head and she appears extremely uncomfortable. She does not display any further reaction, but lip licks when petting stops. Behavior Determination: Experienced, No Children Seymora 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 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.
