**SAFE 07/29/16** UNUSUAL SECOND CHANCE FOR A NEW-HOPE RATED BOY! Fresh on the heels of their “Clear The Shelter” event, the ACC seems bound and determined to get rid of every single cat that it can. Regular followers of the shady way they work, will KNOW that means KILLING a lot of the adoptable pets who languish within their walls. Meet SKY, a 3-year-old boy who was taken to the shelter as part of a HOARDING case, and who was actually scheduled to have been killed on July 25th. He is a tiny bit freaked out by the way his life has unfolded recently, and as such, earned a NEW HOPE rating from the ACC. It’s REMARKABLE that SKY was given a second chance to catch the eye of a foster/adopter tonight, so please MAKE IT COUNT! Please find that special foster/adopter who is willing to work with a NEW HOPE rescue, and SAVE THIS HANDSOME GREY GUY TONIGHT!

07/24/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – NH ONLY
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Sky was resting upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Sky wakes, blinks, and closes his eyes again to rest. Reaction to cage door opening: Sky backs away from the opening and meows softly. Reaction to touch: Sky does not allow touch; he swipes the assessor’s hand without nails and hisses. His ears tilt sideways and he meows softly again. He appears very uncomfortable and would blink and lip lick afterwards. He would lift his paw up to prepare to swipe, but would continue to meow softly. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Sky does not appear to be thriving in the shelter environment and no longer allows touch or any type of contact. He is now displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He has tried to swat, is extremely fearful in the shelter environment, and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time. Date: 06/23/16 Reaction to assessor: Sky looks tense, crouched position on his cage bedding when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Sky retreats further to the back, alert with eyes dilated. Reaction to touch: Sky accepts the stroke, but turns away from the touch and stiffens up in place. Placement determination: Experience / no child Sky tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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.
