STUY – A1073378
Safe - 5-19-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 05/19/16*** THIRD CHANCE FOR SWEET STUY–LET’S MAKE IT COUNT!!! THREATENED! That’s one word to describe the way gorgeous STUY must be feeling within the ACC walls, and when cats feel threatened, they will generally try to defend themselves in some way. For Stuy, that natural response to deadly surroundings has resulted in a NEW HOPE rating and a fast track to the At-Risk List. But, think about this: so long as your home does not aim to replicate conditions at the ACC, your home is probably going to be a much nicer setting for Stuy…so she is much more likely to show her true colors there…and those true colors are likely to be VERY different to how she is reported to act in the shelter. Please look at her New Hope rating in the context of what STUY has been through in the last few days, please look at her medical notes (which seem to show a pet, not a wild animal), and then advocate strongly for STUY, tonight!

Reaction to touch: Stuy hisses, growls, and swats at the assessor’s hand. Behavior Determination: New Hope Only Stuy is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. She has tried to swat and bite, 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. 5/16 additional note: Stuy has shown a range of behaviors, often at the front of the cage soliciting attention and allowing petting through the bars; however, when the cage door is opened or when she is handled, she becomes agitated and begins hissing and swatting.
