*** SAFE 05/12/16 *** NEW HOPE RESCUE NEEDED FOR A SCARED KITTEN TONIGHT! Valkyrie is a 10-month-old youngster who entered the ACC as a stray a few days back. Nothing about his previous existence prepared him for dealing with the stress of the ACC, and that has played out as a NEW HOPE RATING. Bear in mind that most cats decompress and show their true personalities once they are away from the scary shelter, so unless your house is modeled to be exactly like the ACC, Valkyrie is probably going to act very different at your place (if YOU are willing to work with a rescue to save him tonight) than he has acted at the ACC. Please give this guy a chance to live a nice life, and to see his first birthday. Advocate ferociously for Valkyrie, tonight!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Valkyrie was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was fearful upon intake and became defensive during his initial medical exam in an attempt to flee. Reaction to Assessor: Valkyrie was crouched by the back and becomes alert upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Valkyrie focuses on the assessor and his ears tilt slightly sideways. Reaction to cage door opening: Valkyrie becomes stiff and alert, lowering his body. Reaction to touch: Valkyrie remains immobile and allows brief petting on his head, but shifts away afterwards and focuses on the assessor’s hand. When petting was attempted again, he hisses and looks around for an exit. Placement Determination: New Hope Only Valkyrie is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room and/or may require further investigation before placement in a home. He is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and does not currently tolerate petting or handling. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
