***SAFE 08/31/16*** PERFECTLY HEALTHY SHIRL WAS FOUND IN A BASEMENT APARTMENT WHEN HER OWNER PASSED – NOW SHE WILL DIE TOO IF NOT RESCUED ASAP!! SHIRL and another cat SEBA – A1085009 who is not listed tonight were brought into the ACC when found after their owner died. SHIRL is only 3 years old, and she is quite confused at what happened to her, where she is now, and why she is there. Her behavior has been that of a friendly and affectionate cat who gets overstimulated easily and for that, the ACC has punished her with a trip to tonight’s list. SHIRL just had her entire world fall apart. Can you blame her if she’s confused, and a bit cranky at times? SHIRL needs a new home where she can relax and decompress, while getting some extra TLC from her new owner. SHIRL WOULD LOVE TO BE YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND BUT YOU HAVE TO ACT NOW TO SAVE HER LIFE. SHE ONLY HAS TIL NOON! EMAIL [email protected] FOR RESCUE INFO NOW!!

08/26/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPNOCHILD
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Reaction to assessor: Shirl was at the front of the kennel rubbing up against the kennel door. Reaction when softly spoken to: Shirl continues to solicit attention but would periodically hiss and swat. Her tail flickers back and forth and her eyes become dilated. Reaction to cage door opening: Shirl remains neutral. Reaction to touch: Shirl meows softly and rubs up against the assessor’s hand. She doesn’t mind being pet or rubbed on her head or back. Her tail continues to flicker intensely and she whips around to swat when touched on the base of her tail. Reaction to being picked up: Shirl was a bit tense when picked up but didn’t mind being held. Shirl is social and affectionate but appears to be easily overstimulated. 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 Shirl 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 Shirl 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. 08/18/16 Reaction to assessor: Shirl comes to the front of the cage rubbing against the cage door When spoken quietly: Shirl stays at front and continues soliciting attention Reaction to door cage opening: Shirl remains soft & relaxed Reaction to touch: Shirl solicits petting and attention Try picking cat up: Shirl is tolerant of this type of handling. Behavior Determination: Beginner Shirl was brought to the care center as a stray so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies previous to what we are seeing during the evaluation. At the time of the assessment she was displaying friendly behavior, comes to the front of the kennel, interacts with the Assessor, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Shirl is displaying behavior appropriate for a beginner cat owner.
