***SAFE 03/25/17*** NUBIA NEEDS A RESCUE ANGEL NOW!! I need some time to relax in my new surroundings, as well as an adopter who understands how to deal with my more elusive and timid behavior. If you have experience with more frisky cats, I may be the perfect fit for you! I am a gorgeous panther-like kitten with amber-green eyes.
A volunteer writes: You know you can do it. You’ve done it before, and we know you can do it again. We’ve tried to reach this poor, forlorn soul, and we need your help. She needs you. You have all the qualifications for the job: fluent in cat speak, preferably with a New York accent; you’re a Helen Keller for cats, someone who can draw this one out of her silent world and into the land of the living; a cat whisperer who can read all of the signs and instinctively knows what a cat needs and where the cat’s boundaries are. We know you are out there, and we know there is more than one of you. It can be done with ferals, so this one will be easy. Your next mission awaits you. And your reward, as if you don’t know it: a million love shekels, more valuable than gold. RESERVE NUBIA BY NOON TO SAVE HER LIFE!!

A volunteer writes: Nubia is an adorable 10-month-old kitten. She is very shy, but spend some time getting to know her and you will learn that she is also very curious. While trying to make her more comfortable with my presence, I noticed she followed my hand with her eyes every time I moved it. I turned that into a little game, and she broke out of her shyness a little. I think during our hang out session she had a lot of sarcastic thoughts based on her expression, which I found very funny. Nubia was still very polite and kept it cool, so if you want a very relaxed friend, she’s your girl.
03/01/2017 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Name and A#: Nubia KNOWN HISTORY: Indoor and/or Outdoor? Indoor Litter box training: Y Other notes: Rescued from a hoarder environment so little or no known history was obtained EVALUATION: Cage Condition, no change, Reaction to assessor: Does not come forward but looks up Reaction when softly spoken to: Completely ignored Reaction to cage door opening: Remained motionless did not respond Reaction to touch: Hissed at assess-a-hand initially then allowed brief rubs and stroking Reaction to being picked up: Would not allow ENRICHMENT NOTES: Part of ongoing hoarding case. Hunched against wall, stiff posture, head down, whiskers straight out. Flinched when pet, started slowly moving away. Held eye contact throughout interaction. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Scared, curled up in corner of the cage, shrinks away from my touch. No signs of aggression, tolerates exam. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy RECOMMENDATIONS: X__ Experienced cat parent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: X__ Fearful – Nubia has displayed fearful behavior during her stay in the care center and would shift away to avoid contact with extended handling. A fearful cat will feel more relaxed when given options, so provide her with the chance to move closer, investigate, or interact with you. Be sure to offer incentive such as treats or play time whenever the cat makes a small positive step. Please speak to an adoption counselor for additional information on methods to desensitize your cat to their fear stimulus. Behavior observations X__ Experience – Nubia tolerates some attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
