*** SAFE 10/24/17 *** BENI is a sweet but nervous kitty – she needs a new furever home.
Hello, my name is Beni . My animal id is #9349. I am a desexed female brown tabby cat at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks i am about 5 years old. – P
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 10-Oct-2017, with the surrender reason stated as poor choice – too many animals already.

Weight: 5.46 lbs
Details on my behavior are…
KNOWN HISTORY: KNOWN HISTORY: Lived Indoors Previously lived with: 1 adult, 10- 15 cats Behavior toward strangers: Shy and avoids contact Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Respectful and keeps to herself Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Bite or Scratch history: None Litter box training: Yes Energy level/descriptors: Shy, independent, and mellow, with a medium activity level Other notes: She doesnâ€™t mind being picked up/held MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Very sweet but tense and nervous. Easily handle able. Did well for all medical handling and procedures Cage Condition: Cage is neat Reaction to assessor: Beni was tense and lying down completely flat at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Beni slow blinks and lip licks when the assessor tries to coax her forward. Reaction to cage door opening: Beni remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Beni lip licks and watches the assessor with wide, focused eyes when he extends his hand out. She closes her eyes, tolerates being pet and remains completely immobile throughout the interaction. The end of her tail flicks gradually the more you interact with her and after a couple soft pets she starts to grumble then turns her head away. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Independent POTENTIAL CHALLENGES: None BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: Experienced, adult only Behavior Asilomar TM – Treatable-Manageable RECOMMENDATIONS: None BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Beni 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 her new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home.
