**SAFE 08/11/16** AVERAGE RATED TUNA HAS A KITTY COLD!! Tuna has it all! Good looks, he’s neutered and he is super friendly. This 15 lb guy purred during his behavior evaluation and enjoyed being pet! Surely this cat is no “stray.” Tuna is used to living in a home and it’s up to us to get him back in one. ACC plans on killing Tuna tomorrow because he caught the shelter cold. Don’t let that happen. Step up for Tuna tonight!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Our enrichment facilitator has interacted with Tuna and at the time he was sitting in the litter box. Tuna comes forward and purrs softly. He sniffs hand and leans in for rubs. Tuna tail rises when pet along body. Reaction to assessor: Tuna does not come to front but looks at you relaxed and friendly When spoken quietly: Tuna does not come to front but looks at you relaxed and friendly Reaction to door cage opening: Tuna remains soft and relaxed Reaction to touch: Tuna allows petting and attention Try picking cat up: Tuna is tolerant of this type of handling. Behavior Determination: Average Tuna was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment he was displaying calm behavior, did not come to the front of the kennel but interacts with the Assessor, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Tuna is displaying behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
