*** SAFE 10/26/17 *** 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.
Hello, my name is Chrissy. My animal id is #8594. I am a desexed female brown tabby kitten at the Brooklyn Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 5 months 2 weeks old. – P
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 02-Oct-2017, with the surrender reason stated as person circumstance- owner elderly.
Chrissy 8594 is at risk for an upper respiratory infection (URI). Behaviorally, she doesn’t seem to mind being around people, but she may pat the assessor’s hand with her paws when she doesn’t wish to be pet. She allows gentle strokes, but may nip with moderate pressure when she dislikes attention. She has shown playful behavior, however, and will do well in a home with lots of play time. We recommend an adult only home for her.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
KNOWN HISTORY: 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 Condition: 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. ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Calm Timid BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: Experienced, adult only Behavior Asilomar TM – Treatable-Manageable BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: 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.
