Safe - 10-27-2016 Brooklyn
***SAFE 10/27/16*** ADORABLE BLOSSOM HAS AN UMBILICAL HERNIA AND CONJUNCTIVITIS – SHE NEEDS A FOSTER OR ADOPTER TO GET HER OFF THE EUTH LIST AND TO A VET!! BLOSSOM is only 10 weeks old She is as cute as a button, but a bit frightened at being in the shelter. She allowed handling and is EXPERIENCE rated, but she will warm up to her new “purrson” in no time! BLOSSOM sadly has a hernia and some conjunctivitis and the ACC says that’s grounds to kill her.

10/25/2016 BEHAVIOR EVALUATION – EXPERIENCE
Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Blossom was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. Reaction to assessor: Blossom was at the front of the kennel looking out at her surroundings. Reaction when softly spoken to: Blossom makes eye contact then moves to the back when spoken to softly. Reaction to cage door opening: Blossom is alert and becomes focused on the kennel door. Reaction to touch: Blossom is unsure when the assessor extends his hand out and slowly leans back. She sniffs the assessor’s hand, allows petting and slowly raises her body up when pet. Her movements are slow, she looks around scanning her environment and appreciates attention. Reaction to being picked up: Blossom was a bit tense when picked up, curls up and retreats to the back when placed down. Behavior Determination: Experience Blossom may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
