***SAFE 08/11/16***POOR VALENTINE WAS SO SCARED HE HAD TO BE SEDATED!!! WOULDN’T BE SURPRISED IF THEIR “FORM OF SEDATION” INCLUDED PERMANENT SEDATION! VALENTINE is just 3 years old and scared to death and sentenced to death so his fear has its merits! He needs an EXPERIENCED hand with no kids. This guy just needs to explore life outside of a shelter…BUT INSIDE of a home, that’s comforting and loving!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Valentine was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. Reaction to assessor: Valentine was at the back of the kennel, pressed up against the wall. Reaction when softly spoken to: Valentine is alert and has eyes focused on the assessor. Reaction to cage door opening: Valentine remains motionless and starts lip licking. Reaction to touch: Valentine lowers his body and flinches when touched. He starts to low growl and tolerates petting briefly. His body is tense/ stiff and he hisses at the assessor. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Valentine tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his or her new home. 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.
