**SAFE 07/05/16** YET ANOTHER PERFECTLY HEALTHY CAT LISTED TO DIE AT NOON TOMORROW! What a stud! TYGER is a NEUTERED orange creamsicle, and just a baby at a year old. He lost his home when his previous owners were evicted, and now sits waiting in a cage at the ACC for someone to save him. Tyger is noted as sticking his little paw through the cage door, desperate for attention. However, he is a bit tense and unsure of himself in the shelter, and has been given an EXPNOCHILD rating. But really, who can blame him? Smart boy most likely knows the people there don’t have his best interest at heart. His previous owners noted that he would follow them around and preferred to be in the same room as them. He also loves to play with his toys! Do you have any jingle balls you can spare? Tyger would have a blast with them! If you’d like to offer to FOSTER/ADOPT this handsome boy, please act quickly. His last hours are slipping away as you read this. Please contact the Help Desk at [email protected] if you need assistance.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
The former owner states that around strangers Tyger is friendly and outgoing. He lived with a 6 and 7 yr old child in the home and played exuberantly with them both. He has not been around other cats or dogs. Also, described as affectionate, friendly and playful with a medium activity level. Reaction to assessor: Tyger looks neutral, sitting upright at the front of the cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Tyger remains in place, alert with eyes wide open, reaching out with paw for attention. Reaction to touch: Tyger accepts a brief touch on the head, but seems conflicted then hisses and swats while he solicits attention. Placement determination: Experience / no child Tyger is social and affectionate, but appears to be easily overstimulated and plays roughly. 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 Tyger becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance.
