***SAFE 09/14/16*** PERFECTLY HEALTHY SOSA IS A 6 MONTH OLD KITTEN WHO IS BEING KILLED FOR NO REASON AT ALL!! Another healthy adoptable kitten whose fate has fallen in to the hands of the ACC butchers. SOSA was brought in the shelter as a stray and he was said to have shown NO AGGRESSION AT ALL. He allowed gentle petting on his assessment but because he showed that he was nervous, they punished him with an EXPNOCHILD rating and a trip to tonight’s euth list. WHAT CAT IS NOT NERVOUS IN A SCARY SHELTER??? Really this excuse to kill is getting old and we hope that someone out there is as outraged as we are. SOSA is a kitten – kittens will warm up quickly with some good food, sweet talk, and TLC. IF YOU CAN GIVE SOSA A PLACE IN YOUR HOME AND HEART, PLEASE OFFER TO FOSTER OR ADOPT. EMAIL [email protected] FOR RESCUE INFO NOW.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sosa was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He attempted to flee during intake and did not allow handling. He was also very nervous during his initial medical exam and attempted to flee, but did not display any signs of aggression. Reaction to assessor: Sosa was lying down by the back, semi-alert. Reaction when softly spoken to: Sosa looks at the assessor and appeared tense. Reaction to cage door opening: Sosa lowers his body and remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Sosa was hesitant of contact, but allows gentle petting with a slow approach. He slowly picks his body up and leaps toward the front in an attempt to flee from his kennel. The assessor was able to block him off, but he stress meows and continues to climb on the cage door, trying to leave. Placement Determination: Experienced, No Children Sosa 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. 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.
