***SAFE 09/03/17*** SHY SPINACH NEEDS A RESCUE ANGEL TONIGHT – CAN THAT BE YOU???
SPINACH came in with her 4 kittens. They are all very nervous in the shelter and need a home to relax and regroup. Tonight they have put momma cat Spinach on the list only because she is frightened. She did allow some petting with the “fake” assessor’s hand but she is just very timid. PLEASE GIVE SPINACH A HAPPY ENDING – RESERVE HER THROUGH A NEW HOPE RESCUE BY NOON!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Spinach was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. During intake, Spinach had a stiff body and was trying to flee during intake. Limited handling was done due to behavior. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Very nervous, attempted to flee. growling/hissing EVALUATION: Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Spinach makes eye contact with the assessor. She appears very alert of her surroundings. Her ears are up and her eyes dart around the room. Reaction when softly spoken to: Spinach continues to hide. Her tail is wrapped around her body tightly. Reaction to cage door opening: Spinach and her kittens flee to the other side of their kennel. Reaction to touch: Spinach sniffs the assessors hand and appears nervous. She allows petting with the fake assessor hand but appears uncomfortable and tries to flee when assessor tries to touch her. Reaction to being picked up: Could not attempt pick up. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Timid, Shy, Independent RECOMMENDATIONS: New Hope Only Spinach is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She 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.
