***SAFE 03/11/16*** GIFTED TO DEATH? Dear everyone, please STOP GIFTING PETS! Poor SHAQ is poised to become the next poster kitten for WHY that is such a horrible idea. Gifted to someone who probably never wanted him in the first place, and someone who clearly thought this living, breathing kitten should have had the energy level of a pet rock, where is Shaq now? On DEATH ROW because the person who never wanted him in the first place, had ZERO COMPUNCTION about tossing him into the shelter whenever it was convenient for them. Also infuriating are his shelter notes, which appear to have been typed into their computer system by someone wearing welders’ gloves, on a flip phone that was missing a few keys, as they slept. SHAQ will die because he has been failed by everyone who has ever had any say over his fate, unless YOU step up to foster/adopt him TONIGHT!

As per previous owner, Shaq is described as being friendly when around strangers. Shaq hasn’t been around any children or other animals. There have been no past issues of Shaq biting people or animals. Shaq was described as relaxed when in the car. During baths, Shaq will struggle to get out and may swat. As long as he calmed, Shaq is unbothered by nail trims. Shaq is unbothered with being held and was easily placed into the carrier. Reaction to assessor: Shaq comes to the front of the cage – soliciting attention, rubbing against the cage front, and reaching out with paws. Reaction when softly spoken to: Shaq stays at the front – continues to solicit attention, and rubbing against the cage front. Reaction to cage door opening: Shaq remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Shaq initially solicits petting and attention – rubbing against the assessor’s hand, but then becomes playful and overstimulated, and starts to jump around and swat gently. Behavior Determination: Experienced, no children Shaq is social and affectionate but appears to be easily overstimulated and plays roughly. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Shaq becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance.
