06/22/2017 AT RISK MEMO
Tigress A1114937 was placed At Risk for Behavior- Tigress remains soft and relaxed when approached for interactions, but quickly becomes agitated when pet. She only allows brief petting on her head and hisses hard to stop interactions. She will remain tense for the duration of the interaction and will shift away to avoid further contact. Because she is only allowing limited interaction, we recommend she be placed into a stable home environment as quickly as possible.
