**SAFE 02/16/16** WONDERFUL WHITNEY IS PERFECTLY HEALTHY BUT WILL DIE FOR HER FEAR IN THE SHELTER! WHITNEY’S owner dumped this gorgeous cat for what he calls a “pet conflict”. Really? WHITNEY was found 3 years ago and has lived in this home with 7 dachshunds and 2 other cats. Her ex owner said she was overwhelmed by the dogs but got along fine with the cats! Consequently, this less-than-wonderful owner stuffed WHITNEY into a styrofoam box from the local fish market, duct taped it, and carted this pretty kitty off to the kill shelter!! Now this lovely girl is facing death at noon Thursday if someone doesn’t come to her aid tonight! WHITNEY is already spayed and all you need to do is reserve her online if you live in NYC and can pick her up in person right away, or contact a New Hope Rescue if you need transport. Email the help desk at [email protected] for more info. GET WHITNEY A ONE WAY TICKET TO FREEDOM TONIGHT!!

02/09/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Whitney’s former owner stated she is shy around strangers and hides. She has not been around children, therfore behavior is unknown. She lived in a home with 7 Dachshunds and 2 other cats. She got along great with the other cats, but was not too fond of the dogs. She would become overwhelmed by the Dogs in the home and would sometimes swat at them, but will not break skin. Also, described her as friendly, shy at times, independent, and assertive. Reaction to assessor: Whitney looks neutral in her cage when approached by the assessor. Reaction to door opening: Whitney remains lying down by the front of the cage, relaxed body posture, soliciting attention. Reaction to touch: Whitney head-butts the assessor’s hand and appreciates petting on the head and body. However, she slowly retreats away from the touch then began to roll over in place: swats and hisses while continuing to solicit. Placement determination: Experience / no child Initially Whitney solicits petting and attention, but after a few soft passes over the body she begins to swat and hiss at the assessor. This may be a sign of petting-induced aggression, where repeated physical contact results in discomfort for the cat, or it may be a sign of overstimulation. 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 Whitney becomes reactive. Treats should be used to reward appropriate responses to physical attention.
