*** SAFE 08/17/16 *** THE STUFF OF NIGHTMARES…..TULIP was minding her own business and was probably a very happy family cat….till her owners got evicted……And then her nightmare began, TULIP’s family didn’t bring her to the shelter…..the police did and she tried to run away….When she got to the ACC she was totally out of her element and would come out of the carrier…..One day a house cat and the next day surrounded by strangers poking her with a pen….TULIP is already SPAYED and 6 years old. She just needs time and a quiet place to recover herself….The ACC has a quiet place in mind and it’s forever…..TULIP HAS BEEN THROUGH ENOUGH!! So many calicoes have not made it out recently, please make TULIP an exception…apply for her NOW!!

08/05/2016 PET PROFILE MEMO
08/05/16 15:53 Tulip is an adult female DSH cat. Her family had police relinquish her because they were evicted. Police report that the family had just removed their belongings from the apartment the same day. Tulip allowed police to pet her but fled when they tried to pick her up. They used a catch pole to transfer her to a carrier. Tulip hissed when we approached and while I scanned her (+) through the carrier. We put her carrier against a welcome den and touched her with a pen. She remained in her carrier. We tipped it above the open welcome den and touched her with a pen, but she remained in the carrier still. She growled regularly but didn’t hiss when we touched her with the pen. We put a net into the carrier and she fled. She tried to jump/climb and we caught her with the net and transferred her to a carrier.
No Web Memo
08/08/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Tulip looks tense, hiding in her cat den when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Tulip’s head is slightly out of the den, alert with eyes wide open. Reaction to touch: Tulip sniffs the assessor’s hand then slowly retreats back and began to hiss/swat (no claws) to stop the interaction. Placement determination: Experience / no child Tulip tolerates attention and petting but may be stressed 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.
