**SAFE 04/23/16**BETRAYED! The people who “bred” Tiny are the same ones who betrayed him, leaving him to die at the ACC while they moved on with the rest of their lives. Tiny was brought to the ACC with a bunch of other cats who had been his housemates, but he is also reported as having been good with a chihuahua and pit bull who lived upstairs. It’s horrible to teach a 12-year-old child that the way to treat a family member is to drop them off at a kill shelter, but it’s even more horrible to think of where Tiny will be 24 hours from now if a foster/adopter isn’t found for him tonight…..

Reaction to assessor: Tiny was at the front of the cage eating but stopped to look at the assessor When spoken quietly: Tiny continues to look at the assessor Reaction to door cage opening: Tiny remains motionless Reaction to touch: Tiny flitches when touched but allows petting Try picking cat up: Tiny is tolerant of this type of handling but tense. Behavior Determination: Experience At the time of the assessment Tiny was displaying fearful behavior; does not seek attention from the assessor and becomes alert when the kennel was open. Remains motionless as I started to get closer. I was able to pet him and interact with him in a limited way.
