TABBY – A1081929
Safe - 8-5-2016 Brooklyn
**SAFE 08/05/16** SECOND CHANCE FOR UNLOVED TABBY! It’s nice to think that people love their pets, but everything about this page must make clear that some people just, simply, DON’T. Poor TABBY is a 7-year-old sweetie who belonged to people like that, people who received her AS A GIFT from someone, and who just kept her fed for all those years. Read her surrender notes; it sounds like they did nothing to help Tabby feel at her ease, and when they decided they would just chuck her into the ACC, they also pretty much blamed her for their decision! Meanwhile, TABBY started to warm up to the ACC staff and earned a perfectly respectable EXPERIENCE rating….but thanks to the hate speech from the people who threw her under the ACC bus, TABBY CAN ONLY BE SAVED BY A RESCUE TONIGHT! If she were even half as grumpy a cat as her former owners claimed she was, she would NEVER have started to warm up to the ACC staff, she would NEVER have earned that EXPERIENCE rating, and she would NEVER have been given a second chance! Please do everything in your power to SAVE TABBY TONIGHT!

07/27/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Tabby’s previous owner states that she lived with 1 child and 1 adult. She’s nervous, will run from strangers and has bitten and scratched people in the past. The enrichment facilitator has been monitoring Tabby and reports that she was extremely nervous, stayed at the back of the kennel and allowed brief handling. As the days went by she slowly got used to contact and would even lean in for cheek and neck rubs. She appreciates attention and slowly comes forward as long as you go slowly with her. Reaction to assessor: Tabby was curled up at the back of the kennel with her eyes closed. Reaction when softly spoken to: Tabby becomes alert, her ears rotate and she lowers her head behind the litter box. Reaction to cage door opening: Tabby remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Tabby sniffs the assessor’s hand and allows petting all over as long as you go slowly. She raises her head up and leans in for cheek and neck rubs. It takes some time to warm up but she’ll rise up and slowly approach the front of the kennel. At the front she gives light head butts and looks around, wary of her environment. Reaction to being picked up: Tabby is a bit tense, looks around and lip licks but allows all handling. Behavior Determination: Experience may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
