SHEBA – A1064398
Safe - 2-9-2016 Brooklyn Rescue: Happy Homes Please honor your pledges: http://www.happyhomesinc.org/
**SAFE 02/09/16** Scheduled to die for an EXPNOCHILD rating—that’s what it boils down to for beautiful, healthy, adoptable SHEBA tonight! After years of posturing that they only killed sick or unadoptable cats,the ACC has ‘fessed up that pets with an Experience or EXPNOCHILD rating can be listed specifically because of those ratings. HOW UNFAIR! Cats are sensitive, intelligent creatures who are naturally not going to be their best at the ACC. Oh, and that “rating system” the shelter uses? It was designed for dogs, not for cats, and even it’s inventor said it should NEVER be used to decide who lives and who dies. SHEBA is less than 2 years old, she is already spayed, and she needs a FOSTER or ADOPTER to save her life, tonight!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sheba was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. The finder reports she was easy to handle, but during her initial medical exam she did not allow handling and became defensive. Reaction to Assessor: Sheba was calm and relaxed upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Sheba looks at the assessor and blinks. Reaction to cage door opening: Sheba becomes alert, but remains in place. Reaction to touch: Sheba hisses at the assessor’s hand, but will slowly nudge her head close to sniff. She will allow petting and lean into it, but she growls randomly, focuses on the assessor’s hand, and her tail sways from side to side. Placement Determination: Experience No Child Sheba tolerates attention and petting but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to growl at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. 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 Sheba becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention. We feel that this cat will do best in a home with experienced cat parents and without children.
