SPIKE – A1082013
Safe - 7-31-2016 Brooklyn Rescue: Happy Homes Please honor your pledges: http://www.happyhomesinc.org/
***SAFE 07/31/16*** Look closely at the beautiful patterns on SPIKE’s coat; who couldn’t get lost in those forever….? SPIKE is a 3-year-old girl who wound up at the ACC with a “stray” intake, and who has been given NO time by the ACC whatsoever. She’s been given that 72-hour stray hold, and she’s earned an EXPNOCHILD rating, but that is all the so-called “care” the so-called “shelter” was able to muster on her behalf. Tonight they have included her on a TERRIFYING list of 45 cats and kittens they’re looking forward to killing, which means this pretty lady faces steep odds of leaving their custody alive! Please make sure SPIKE is one of the lucky ones tomorrow, who are able to leave through the front door to freedom. Advocate convincingly for SPIKE, tonight!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Our enrichment facilitator has interacted with Spike and at the time she was hiding under her blanket. Spike hisses when uncovered. She leans forward and sniffs hand. Spike leans in for rubs and slowly comes forward. Reaction to assessor: Spike comes to the front rubbing against the cage door When spoken quietly: Spike stays at front and continues soliciting attention Reaction to door cage opening: Spike tries to walk out and growls when blocked Reaction to touch: Spike allows petting and attention but continues to growl Try picking cat up: Did not attempt Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Spike was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment she was displaying conflicted friendly behavior, comes to the front of the kenne and starts to rub and head-butt the cage door. Spike tries to leave the cage and starts to growl when her exit is blocked. Spike allows petting but continues to growl. Spike is displaying behavior appropriate for an experience cat owner with no children.
