SHORTCAKE – A1077352
Safe - 6-19-2016 Brooklyn Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
*** SAFE 06/19/16 *** SHORTCAKE is a feisty little kitten. He was brought in with a litter of strays and this tiny black male with a small patch of white is around 9 weeks old and a little over 2 pounds. Precious! SHORTCAKE probably hasn’t had much experience with people because he’s very wary of people at the shelter. He’s still young and once he gets some socialization he’ll be ready to bond with his new owner. This little guy doesn’t deserve to die tomorrow at the shelter. He’s a sweet scared guy with his whole life ahead of him and he wants to be your best furry friend! Since he’s scared still, he can be saved through New Hope Rescue. If you want to save the life of this adorable little guy please contact [email protected] and see how you can rescue him!!! SHORTCAKE is sweet and strong and is desperately in need of your help!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Our enrichment facilitator has interacted with Shortcake and at the time he was nervous. Shortcake hisses and spits. He moves away from contact and becomes immobile when pet along body. Shortcake continued hissing throughout interaction. He closes eyes after a while and seems to appreciate touch. Reaction to assessor: Shortcake was sleeping when i approached When spoken quietly: Shortcake hisses at the assessor Reaction to door cage opening: Shortcake becomes stiff and continues to hiss Reaction to touch: Shortcake tries to avoid touch, spits, hisses and growls Try picking cat up: Shortcake becomes motionless when held but will try to flee if he heards any loud sounds Behavior Determination: NewHope Shortcake was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. Shortcake seems to not be thriving in this environment and at the time of the assessment he was displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and may require further investigation before placement in a home. He is extremely fearful and currently does not tolerate much petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
