SIMBA – A1081597
Gone - 7-22-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 07/22/16 *** SECOND CHANCE FOR THIS CREAMSICLE GUY! MAKE IT COUNT!! SCARED SIMBA NEEDS UNDERSTANDING!! Basically a mellow guy, SIMBA can be overstimulated with too much attention…..his family either didn’t understand this or didn’t care to….as they never took him to a vet to see why he reacts. In addition they have a toddler, and for giving a cat too much stimulation there’s nothing like an unsupervised toddler…..SIMBA is only 2 and he’s already NEUTERED. He just needs understanding and a home that realizes what his limits are. A check up by a competent vet wouldn’t hurt either……With 34 other cats on the list, SIMBA may have a tough time tonight, if people don’t look beneath the surface and see the nice cat underneath the fear…..SUPPORT SIMBA TONIGHT & GIVE HIM A CHANCE….Apply to FOSTER or ADOPT him NOW!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Simba has lived with three adults and a toddler. He is described as fearful towards the family members in the home. The previous owner stated Simba will hiss ,swat and generally stay hidden. He has not been around other cats or dogs. Our enrichment facilitator has interacted with Simba and at the time he was meowing softly then comes to the front. Simba rubsup against hand, purrs softly with tail raised. Allows petting all over, remains calm and relaxed body. Reaction to assessor: Simba resting in the cat den When spoken quietly: Simba stays in the cat den Reaction to door cage opening: Simba comes to the front of the cage Reaction to touch: Simba solicits petting and attention but becomes overstimulated Reaction to other cats: Simba hisses and swats if he sees another cat. Simba may redirect if attempted to touch while hisses at another cat Try picking cat up: Simba is tolerant of this type of handling Simba is social and affectionate but appears to be easily overstimulated. 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 Simba 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. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child At the time of the assessment she was displaying friendly behavior and comes to the front of the kennel. Simba interacts with the Assessor and solicits attention but becomes overstimaluated after a few minutes. Simba is displaying behavior appropriate for a experience cat owner with no children.
