CHARLIE – A1111567
Gone - 5-13-2017 Brooklyn
***GONE 05/13/17*** CHARMING CHARLIE is a 13 year old sweet senior who was dumped for “pet health” and needs a new home! She needs medical eval to determine what is causing fluid and lesions on her body. She allows gentle petting but is not feeling well so this may be affecting her behavior. PLEASE RESERVE CHARLIE BY NOON!
Charlie has lived in the same home for most of her life, and after finding herself at the Brooklyn Care Center it’s no wonder she’s not too pleased! She wasn’t too happy with handling during her intake and initial medical exam, but who would be at her age? She’s still unsure when people touch her rear and back, but has been giving the gentlest of head-butts and leaning in for cheek rubs these past few days. This lovely senior lady would be happiest in an experienced, adult-only home where she can explore and adjust at her own pace.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Upon intake Charlie was wary of his surroundings and hissed when the counselor approached her. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Fractious, hissing, vocalizing and biting. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 05/10/17 Lying in back of kennel with a low body and wide eyes. She makes eye contact when spoken to and vocalizes softly. Tolerates petting along her head while continuing to meow softly with wide eyes – licking lips. Turns head and meows loudly when touched along back. Needs more time to adjust. 05/11/17 Lying on her side in front of the kennel. She watches me as I approach and head-butts my hand very gently when I reach towards her. She allows petting along her head, remaining seated and leaning in gently. Her body tenses and she looks back at my hand when it moves towards her back. Uncomfortable with back being touched. May be painful. More relaxed today – has potential to warm up. 05/12/17 Wrapped up in her blanket. She turns her head to make eye contact when spoken to softly. Alert, ears facing forward, slow blinks. Remains motionless when the door opens. Licks and leans head back when I extended my hand out. Unsure, but allows soft pets on her head. Slightly tilts head, leaning in for rubs. Not fully comfortable being touched along her body. Whips around quickly, lip licks and becomes focused on my hand. Feels tense. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy RECOMMENDATIONS: Experienced, adult home only – Charlie 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.
