SUNFLOWER – A1090067
Safe - 9-20-2016 Manhattan
***SAFE 09/20/2016***Her owner gave her a summertime name but Sunflower unless someone will be her hero, Sunflower will not be allowed to blossom into the cat she could be. She is a 3 year old black domestic kitty who was given up for being destructive. No notes of what she did to deserve this death sentence but I guess the owner didn’t really care. Yet this same owner said this cat was curious, engaging, and loved to play hide and seek with him. Sunflower tolerated attention and petting but was trying to hide and was tense so the shelter slapped her with an EXPNOCHILD rating. There must be someone who can help her in this time of need. She is a wonderful cat who just needs the right purrson!! Please apply to a New Hope rescue before it’s too late!

Reaction to assessor: Sunflower continues to hide (was hiding on approach) Reaction when softly spoken to: Sunflower continues to hide. Reaction to cage door opening: Sunflower retreats further into the cat den. Reaction to touch: Sunflower continues to hide – is immobile when touched. Behavior Determination: Experienced, no children Sunflower tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his or her new home. She may have some behavioral issues that will need to be addressed in the 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.
