SQUEAKY – A1066039
Safe - 3-11-2016 Staten Island Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
***SAFE 03/11/16*** NEW HOPE! Poor SQUEAKY is a spayed 4-year-old lady whose former owners kept her inside, did not have another pet, and fed her Fancy Feast. Sounds okay so far, but one does wonder how much they socialized this girl? Squeaky’s coat is a tapestry of muted earth tones but her eyes are wary and fearful; Squeaky knows that her life is in danger. She was brought to the shelter for biting someone, and has been released from a Department of Health hold for ONE NIGHT only. The DOH could have killed Squeaky the literal MINUTE her hold was up, but someone saw enough sweetness in that little face, someone saw enough potential in this girl, that she was given ONE chance. Squeaky needs a NEW HOPE rescue to pull her to safety tonight, and in order for that to happen, a rescue will need a FOSTER or ADOPTER. Message [email protected] if you can be that hero, and otherwise, please share her story and pledge toward her care. SAVE SQUEAKY TONIGHT!

Socialization: Around strangers, Squeaky takes a while to open up and is shy for a bit. Around adults and children, she plays somewhat rough and will swat or hiss when she has had enough. She does not play with children and has never been around another cat or dog before so her behavior is unknown. She has bitten another person before but has never bitten another animal before. Behavior: Squeaky has a scratching post but will sometimes scratch the furniture or drapes. In the car ride, she was afraid and meowed/cried. She has no litter box issues according to the previous owners. She was never given a bath so her behavior is unknown but is her nails are trimmed, she will try to swat. She is not bothered when her coat is brushed or if she is disturbed while sleeping. It is a struggle to get her into the carrier and the previous owner put food in as an incentive which worked and Squeaky went inside.

IN the home, she is the type to follow you around, sit on your lap, of be in the same room as you. She enjoys all sorts of cat toys, especially chasing toys.
