SUNNY D – A1070641
Safe - 4-25-2016 Manhattan Rescue: Staten Island Hope Please honor your pledges: http://www.statenislandhoperescue.org/
***SAFE 04/25/16*** SUNNY D is just 1 years old and much too young to have his life cut short. He was hanging around the client’s neighborhood, a STRAY that wasn’t really claimed by anyone… Just hung around and got a little food. This person also said that Sunny D is good with his children ages ranging from 5-8. He allowed the children to hold him and interacted with them, with no signs of aggression. Possibly this cat actually belonged to the surrendered party that just didn’t want to pay the fee! At any rate this orange, ball of fun will need an EXPERIENCED hand! Offer to take this kitten in and add a little SUNNY D…days to your life!

04/21/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Sunny D looks tense in the cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Sunny D remains crouched position at the back of the cage, stress meowing in place, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Sunny D began to lip lick and twitch during the touch, but accepts the stroke expressing no interest. Placement determination: Experience / no child Sunny D tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. 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. Additional notes: Sunny D is reported to have been born and lived outside, though he interacts well with people. He was social and appropriate with the finder’s children. He does not appear to be thriving in the shelter environment, however, and has not warmed up to his human caretakers. In addition to the interaction with the assessor, with our Enrichment Facilitator Sunny D avoided touch, pressing himself into the corner of the cage, freezing when touched and startling at noise. We cannot be sure of how well socialized Sunny D is or how he will respond to living in a home, but it is in his best interest to leave the shelter environment quickly.
