***SAFE 06/13/16***11 WEEK OLD VINX who can be saved only via a rescue didn’t do anything bad like bite or scratch at ACC. This frightened little kitten just needed some time, and the ACC-and their wonderful “partner” the ASPCA with their “kitten nursery” was not going to bother was a scared 11 week old who hisses and hides so now this little fellow will pay with his life unless he’s lucky enough to be pulled by a rescue who has a foster or adopter willing to take a frightened little guy. VINX isn’t aggressive, and with love and time this precious kitten will come around..but ACC didn’t even bother to get a good picture. Won’t you save his life by offering to foster til forever? Or reach out to adopt this guy, who has done nothing to deserve this!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Vinx came into the care center as a stray, reportedly born into a colony. He allowed handling without aggressing during his initial medical examination, but hissed and hid. On day one with our Enrichment Facilitator Vinx was hiding under a blanket, tense, hissing and moving away from contact. On day two he was again hiding and avoiding contact. He allowed petting but flinched and was noticeably uncomfortable with the contact. Vinx appears to be undersocialized to human contact. We recommend placement with a foster or adopter experienced with kitten socialization and prepared to help Vinx grow comfortable and confident with human interaction. Reaction to assessor: Vinx hisses when the assessor approaches. When she stands in front of the cage, he continues hissing, staring with wide eyes at the assessor, and retreats to the back of the cage. Reaction to cage door opening: Remains at the back of the cage, very tense. Reaction to touch: Due to known history and the clear signals Vinx is giving of discomfort and desire to move away, the assessor did not push Vinx to accept touch. Placement determination: New Hope Only Vinx is displaying behaviors that preclude placement in the adoptions room. He is extremely fearful in the shelter environment and appears undersocialized to humans. He is uncomfortable with all human interaction. The behavior department feels that placement with a New Hope Partner is the best option at this time.
