TRISH – A1093837
Gone - 10-22-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 10/22/16***Trish has to make herself stand out from all the other cats that look like her at the shelter. She’s 2 year old brown and white tabby who was brought in as a stray. She’s a little uneasy, maybe just shy. During her intake, she allowed the assessor to pet her. After a little bit, she had enough and hissed at him. She’s probably been on her own and will need a home where she can relax and decompress. Please see that Trish is worthy of a good home by applying to adopt or foster her tonight!

10/20/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Trish looks neutral, lying down on her cage bedding when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Trish stands with tail up in place, relaxed body posture, soliciting attention. Reaction to touch: Trish accepts the stroke, but during the touch she began to hiss with ears back and swats while she continues to solicit. Placement determination: Experience / no child Initially Trish solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to hiss and swat at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Trish becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
