**SAFE 08/20/16** VERY SPECIAL KITTEN NEEDS A FOSTER OR ADOPTER TONIGHT! The next potential victim of someone who GIFTED a kitten to someone who probably didn’t want one, is poor WILLET! She was GIFTED to someone in MARCH, lived with a small dog and another cat, but 5 months down the road a roommate became spontaneously “allergic” to her…..with predictable results. One gift—three animals in a household—one animal taken to the ACC—one more unsedated and POINTLESS death scheduled for tomorrow. New York City, WAKE THE EFF UP! Your animals are being killed at a terrifying rate because people are NOT approaching pet ownership with anything like intelligence, diligence, or even common sense…..and when that falls apart, those same animals are being handed over to a “care” system that is understaffed, overstressed, and HORRIBLE at finding homes for these animals! They are good at making themselves look good, but that won’t save WILLET tomorrow! This is an excellent kitten with adorable oversized canines, already spayed, and her notes make her out to be a CHARMER! But she’ll rot in a landfill because NO ONE IS PAYING ATTENTION, or almost no one….and the ones paying attention, STILL AREN’T FOSTERING OR ADOPTING! Please take a stand against EVERYTHING THAT’S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE, AND SAVE WILLET TONIGHT!!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owners, Willet is friendly around strangers and plays exuberantly with them. She has lived with a 2 year old female cat and was relaxed and affectionate her. Willet also lived with a small terrier and was fearful towards her and she’ll hiss around large dogs. Her owners say she isn’t bothered when picked up and she will struggle when placed in a carrier. She’s described as being affectionate and playful with a medium activity level. Her favorite activity is chasing string and playing with mouse toys. Willet is litter box trained and uses a vertical scratching post made of carpet. Reaction to assessor: Willet was on top her feral den looking out at her surroundings. Reaction when softly spoken to: Willet is curious and reaches out towards the assessor with paws. Reaction to cage door opening: Willet is calm and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Willet is vocal and rubs up against the assessor for attention. She allows petting all over her body and starts to purr softly. Her tail flickers the more and more you interact with her then she gets aroused and will hiss. She lightly bats at the assessor then goes back to soliciting attention. Reaction to being picked up: Willet has a soft body when held and will struggle to get away shortly after. Willet is social and affectionate but appears to be showing signs 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 Willet becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Willet solicits attention and tolerates petting but may be assertively demanding of attention or may play roughly. 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.
