SHY – A1083417
Gone - 8-4-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 08/04/16***BIG CUDDLY ORANGE AND WHITE MALE, IN NEED OF A LOVING HOME! SHY is very handsome. He looks like he belongs on the cover of a cat calendar, with his big yellow eyes! SHY is 5 years old and was dropped off at the shelter because his owner had personal problems. How sad, that this guy will lose his life tomorrow if he’s not rescued! SHY was a wonderful pet, and he’s hoping he’ll find his new home today, instead of being killed. ORANGE CATS are sweethearts, and this guy is no exception! He has a medium to high activity level and likes to run around. This big cuddly guy is fearful at the shelter, and would do best in an experienced pet home with no children. SHY is waiting for you to be his kitty angel! Please save SWEET SHY TODAY!!!

Reaction to cage door opening: Shy retreats towards the back of the cage. Reaction to touch: Shy moves away to avoid being touched, and continues to meow-whine and hiss when pet. Behavior Determination: Experienced, no children Shy tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. He may have some behavioral issues that will need to be addressed in the 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.
