*** SAFE 03/01/16 *** FIRE destroyed her home and tomorrow, the ACC plans to destroy BABYGIRL! This sweet 12-year-old lady had lived with kids and a pit bull, plus a couple of other cats, but the WHOLE FAMILY scattered to the winds when a fire took their home. BABYGIRL is already spayed and has a lot to offer the person who saves her life, but the ACC is not willing to give her any more time in which to find that hero. She is already spayed, she has an EXPNOCHILD rating, and one of her housemates (PrettyBoy) has already been saved. Make sure that’s the case for BABYGIRL (and don’t forget about Snowball) by offering to FOSTER or ADOPT her, tonight!

02/28/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Babygirl is described as fearful and shy. She lived with 4 adults and a small child. Snowball is friendly and outgoing around strangers and enjoys playing with string, catnip toys, and laser pointers. She lived with a pit-bull in the home and is described as tolerant towards him. The previous owner stated that Snowball would scratch at their furniture. She was not bathed by the owner and enjoyed being brushed. Reaction to assessor: Babygirl is curled up at the back of the kennel with wide eyes focused on the assessor. Reaction when softly spoken to: Babygirl is motionless at the back and slowly turns her head away towards the wall. Reaction to cage door opening: Babygirl remains tense and motionless. Reaction to touch: Babygirl hisses on approach and is hesitant of contact. She is very alert with her ears perked up and allows petting with a slow approach. She tilts her head allowing rubs and slowly warms up to contact but doesn’t come forward. Babygirl is reported to have a history of scratching the furniture, and should go to a home that can safely cat-proof sofa/ couches in the home. We advise future adopters to make sure to provide mentally and physically stimulating toys to keep Babygirl occupied when left alone. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Babygirl tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his or her new home. 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.
