ZIPPER – A1080018
Gone - 7-9-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 07/09/16*** GENTLE LADY NEEDS SOME TLC! ZIPPER is a 10 year old house panther who was found as a stray. She’s earned an awesome AVERAGE RATING! She remained calm and relaxed during her assessment and is described as easy to handle. Zipper does have some dental disease and other normal “wear and tear” for a cat of her age, particularly one living outside. This sweetheart would surely blossom in a loving home after being given a bit of care from a REAL vet! A FOSTER situation might be ideal for her, as a New Hope rescue can assist with her medical bills while you get to concentrate on giving her all the TLC she so desperately deserves. Of course she can also be ADOPTED out right by any one willing to go the extra mile for her! Zipper should spend her golden years being snuggled and loved on. Don’t let the ACC win this one, step up for her TONIGHT! If you’d like to work with a New Hope partner, please contact the Help Desk at [email protected] Please hurry, you could be her only hope!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Zipper came into the care center as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home or to her previous situation. Zipper was cautious during her initial medical examination and tried to flee from the table, but she tolerated all handling. She remained resting at the back of her kennel when approached for her behavior evaluation, but she remained soft and relaxed and enjoyed chin scratches. Reaction to assessor: Zipper is resting at the back of her cage. She looks at the assessor but remains neutral. Reaction to cage door opening: Remains resting, body relaxed. Reaction to touch: Zipper is a bit timid but sniffs the assessor’s hand and allows petting on the head and along the body. Placement determination: Average Zipper interacts with the Assessor, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
