BRODY – A1092558
Gone - 10-10-2016 Manhattan
***GONE 10/10/16*** POOR BRODY WAS JUST LYING DOWN, LIKELY FROM EXHAUSTION, FROM ROAMING THE STREETS ALL DAY. THAT CAR THEN RAN HIM OVER, IN PARTICULAR, HIS HIND LEGS CAUSING A POSSIBLE PELVIC FRACTURE. This “driver” should have at least taken him to a competent vet, -NOT a HIGH KILL SHELTER! But like so many people today, selfishness rules their lives and have no care for any one or any thing else! Now, this guy needs to see an orthopedist. If you can just FOSTER, 3 year old BRODY, the pulling rescue will pay for that. He can be adopted, but you need to agree to have him seen by an orthopedist and shoulder that bill yourself! He’s AVERAGE RATED and just needs someone to give him a place to recover and heal. Say you will help, this hurting boy. Every minute that goes by, is another minute of pain that BRODY is in. By noon tomorrow, the ACC plans to put and end to it the hard way! HE JUST DOESN’T DESERVE TO DIE LIKE THIS!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Brody was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. His finder reports they witnessed him being hit by a car as the car was backing up. He allowed the finder to pick him up and place him into a carrier. He allowed handling upon intake and during his initial medical exam. Reaction to assessor: Brody was calm and relaxed upon approach. Reaction when softly spoken to: Brody looks at the assessor with almond-shaped eyes. Reaction to cage door opening: Brody remains soft and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Brody lowers his head and accepts petting. He closes his eyes and leans in for cheek rubs. Reaction to being picked up: Did not attempt due to injury. Behavior Determination: Average Brody interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Please note that this cat is being treated for a medical condition at the time of evaluation. It is difficult to determine at this time how the medical condition may be affecting the behavior. However, in spite of an injury this cat remains social and affectionate. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
