CHRISSY – 8594
Urgent - Brooklyn
CHRISSY is an adorable kitten who was surrendered to the shelter because her owner is elderly and could no longer care for her. CHRISSY would do best with an experienced foster or adopter.
Chrissy 8594– 5 months old, Female, Domestic Short Hair, Gray and White
Chrissy’s previous owner reports she is friendly and outgoing around strangers. Chrissy has spent time with a 13 year old. Around her she was relaxed and affectionate and exuberant at play. She has never been around other cats or dogs, so her behavior around them is unknown. Chrissy is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, and talkative. She was kept indoors only and at night she slept in her previous owners bed. She is litter box trained and used an uncovered litter box and clumping litter.
Cage is neat
Reaction to assessor:
Chrissy was curled up by the front, resting.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Chrissy picks her head up to look at the assessor, and then she places it back down to rest.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Chrissy remains soft and relaxed.
Reaction to touch:
Chrissy focuses on the assessor’s hand and was hesitant of touch. She allows gentle petting, but she nips the assessor’s hand and will nip again when petting is attempted. She tolerates being pet, but she will apply more pressure when nipping and will use her paws to pat the assessor’s hand.
Experienced, adult only
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Chrissy tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. She may be 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.
Suitability With Children:
10/05/17 Behavior: Adult only

For a New Family to Know
Chrissy is described as friendly, affectionate, playful, confident, and talkative. The thing her previous owner liked most about her was she is very friendly. She would tend to follow her previous owner around. She likes to play with balls and stuffed toys. She was kept indoors only and at night she slept in her previous owners bed. She ate wet Friskies and 9 Lives. She ate tuna for treats. She is litter box trained and used an uncovered litter box and clumping litter. She did not have a scratching post but scratched a couch made of fabric.
Chrissy allowed me to pet and pick her up her originally. After being placed down she had a low body and growled when touched. When placed in her kennel she hissed, growled and swatted.
