SAFE 3/8/17 Cute As A Button! Intriguing Torbie Girl, Our BELL PEPPER!
Bell Pepper A1105052 – 3 yr. spayed Torbie, stray:
Upon intake Bell Pepper had a loose wiggly body, she was lifted from the carrier and placed on the carrier for photos and scanned (negative) and photographed.
Lying flatly in center of one side of her double kennel, alert. Stress meows, lip licks. Hisses and ears flatten, weight shifts to rear, body remains flat, almost coiled, and lets me know she’s not open to being touched this morning. Showed a lot of interest in a small catnip-stuffed plush toy, played with that when I wasn’t looking. Became increasingly upset when I was interacting with the cat in the cage above hers, growling, ears pinned all the way back. I added a screen cover to one side of her kennel, sprayed Feliway, gave fresh food and some treats. Update: Checked back on her to see if she’d still need the screen cover–doesn’t seem like it. More at ease now. She was friendly when I opened the cage door and extended my hand, letting me give head rubs. I gave a pinch of catnip-silver vine mix and she went to town! Playful, more receptive to petting while enjoying the herbs. Video taken and submitted. She seems to overstimulate herself a bit, grumbling some after I’d moved away to another kennel but not really directed at anything. Intriguing cat. Left some treats for her, left cage cover off.
