***SAFE 01/04/16*** SUPER SWEET SUNKIST GINGERBREAD MAN NEEDS RESCUE ANGEL! Everyone knows that orange boys are the sweetest and our purrfect pal, Sunkist is no exception to the creamsicle rule. This darling boy, who’s about three years old, came in as a stray surrender on 12/28 after living in the finder’s basement for several days. According to the finder, Sunkist was receptive to feeding, used the litterbox, was receptive and playful to another cat that lived in the home. We are not sure why this person decided to dump Sunkist, a healthy and sweet boy at the kill happy shelter. He received an experienced no kids rating just because he seemed a little shy and stressed at the shelter. This is a good boy who deserves a new “leash” on life. Can you be the kind purrson who makes sure that this is not Sunkist’s last day EVER? Please reserve him online or let a rescue know if you can help. Transportation is available. Don’t forget that fostering saves lives so let us know if you can offer temporary safe haven. Young, gingerbread men are highly adoptable. Make the call for super sweet Sunkist! Save a life. Make a difference.

01/03/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Sunkist was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. However, Sunkist’s finders found him in their basement and report he was receptive to feeding and used the open litter box that was provided for him. Sunkist allowed petting and was playful to another cat that lived in the home. The enrichment facilitator has been monitoring Sunkist and reports that she is very tense and fearful. She is tolerant of handling but tries to avoid contact and hide. Reaction to assessor: Sunkist is curled up in the back of the kennel and starts to slow blink. Reaction when softly spoken to: Sunkist remains motionless and turns his head away. Reaction to cage door opening: Sunkist curls up and lowers his head. Reaction to touch: Sunkist licks his lips and tolerates petting. He is tense and has a stiff body when touched. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Sunkist tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his or her new 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.
