SHYLA – A1091205
Gone - 10-13-2016 Brooklyn
*** GONE 10/13/16 *** SWEET SHYLA BABY FRIENDLY!! SHYLA lived with a newborn, children and another cat. Very good natured, she liked to be in the same room as her owner, and she also likes being brushed! Her pet parents turned out not to be pet parents at all but another set of people who didn’t bother to find pet friendly housing!! SHYLA is a little confused and nervous at the shelter, so as usual the ACC gave this sweetheart cat an Experience rating. SHYLA is already SPAYED and just needs some time to fall in love with a new family!! IF YOU CAN RESCUE SHYLA TONIGHT, ACT NOW!! She can be publicly reserved on the At Risk online website or you can contact a NEW HOPE rescue to foster or adopt! If you need assistance, email [email protected] and complete the pre-screener on the Help Desk link!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Shyla’s previous owner reports she has lived with a new born baby and was very respectful, playing gently with the baby. She played gently with both adults and children. She is shy around strangers for a few minutes, but warms up quickly. She has also lived with another cat and was tolerant of this cat, but would run away when the other cat wanted to play. She enjoys being brushed, but does not like being picked up and held. She was described as friendly, affectionate, and independent with a low activity level. She isn’t very playful with toys anymore, but she likes to be in the same room as the owner. The enrichment facilitator reports she quiet and tense during their first interaction, but she sniffed their hand and allowed some head scratches. She snapped her head around and hissed when she was pet on her body, however. Reaction to assessor: Shyla was lying down, calm and relaxed upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Shyla sits up and looks at the assessor with almond-shaped eyes, and then meows softly. Reaction to cage door opening: Shyla slowly approaches the front. Reaction to touch: Shyla sniffs the assessor’s hand and flinches when her nose touches the hand, but head-butts after. She leans in for petting and allows the assessor to pet her gently on her back, lifting her tail straight up. She seems to appreciate attention and begins to purr. Reaction to pick up: Shyla shifts away and avoids being picked up. She lies down afterwards and lip licks, but continues to allow petting and leans in for cheek rubs. Behavior Determination: Experience Shyla tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. She may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
