**SAFE 05/03/16**SWEET SENIOR WILLAMINA HAS LOST HER ONLY HOME….Fourteen year old WILLAMINA came in as a “stray”, yet she clearly was not. Since the owner’s son knew her habits and reported that she got special food for a sensitive stomach…..This lovely senior is not happy at the ACC and it shows with her hiding but still meowing when someone approaches…WILLAMINA led a solo cat life with no pets and kids and just liked to hang with her owner or chill out by the window. She is already SPAYED and on the pleasingly plump side….PLEASE HELP THIS STUNNING SENIOR FIND A NEW SAFE HAVEN TONIGHT!! Apply to FOSTER or ADOPT NOW!! If you need assistance, email [email protected]

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Willamina is described as being fearful around strangers, but playing gently once she has warmed up to a new person. She has not been exposed to dogs or other cats. Her previous owner describes her as playful, shy, fearful, and independent, with a low activity level. Willamina has allowed only minimal interaction since arriving at the care center, charging and swatting during her medical evaluation. Two days later she continues to hide in her cage and avoids interaction. Reaction to assessor: Willamina is hiding in her den and meows when approached. Reaction to cage door opening: Continues hiding. Reaction to touch: Willamina backs away from the assessor’s outstretched hand, hissing with a tense body and wide eyes. Placement determination: Experienced adopters, no children Willamina tolerates minimal attention in the care center and appears stressed in this environment. She will need time to warm up slowly to her new family, and she may be intimidated by small children. 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.
