DENNY – A1102314
Safe - 2-4-2017 Brooklyn Rescue: Pet Adoption League of NY Please honor your pledges: https://www.facebook.com/PALofNY/
***SAFE 02/04/17*** A volunteer writes: The first thing people notice about Denny (besides his beautiful markings, of course!) are his big tomcat cheeks, and this guy sure lets you know he’s here! When he’s done meowing at the front of his cage, he can usually be found crouched at the back… Unless you have catnip, that is! He can be shy around strangers, but with some encouragement, catnip, and time this handsome guy looks forward to seeing you again. We’ll be sure to give him plenty of catnip after his neuter so he’ll be the most relaxed kitty around!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
KNOWN HISTORY: Previously lived with: Unknown Behavior toward children: Unknown Behavior toward strangers: Unknown Behavior toward cats: Unknown Behavior toward dogs: Unknown Bite history: Unknown Scratch history: Unknown Litter box training: Unknown EVALUATION: Cage Condition: No change Reaction to assessor: Denny was lying down on his blanket, pressed up against the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Denny seems wary of his surroundings then started grooming himself when the assessor called his name. Reaction to cage door opening: Denny becomes alert. Reaction to touch: Denny seems curious and slowly leans forward to sniff the assessor’s hand when approached. He keeps his body lowered with his tail curled up and allows petting with a slow gentle approach. After a couple soft passes he shifts away, lip licks and looks around the kennel wary of his environment. When approached again he hisses and leaned away as a warning to stop. ENRICHMENT NOTES: 01/29/17 Arrived 1/26, but there’s no admissions notes. Nervous and wary, huge tomcat. Hesitant about touching. REALLY enjoyed catnip, definitely got stimulated. Needs time to adjust. Adding to socialization list. 01/30/17 Alert, tense, wary, resists touching, will pull away, anxious, focuses on surroundings, stress meows. Loves catnip, plays with a toy, great appetite, will eat treats from my hand but does inadvertently use teeth. Allowed a little bit of petting while eating, but skittish and uncomfortable. Huge cat, really beautiful markings. Clean, bright, sturdy, alert. MEDICAL BEHAVIOR: Very tense; hissed and growled ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back VOCAL: Quiet CHARACTER TYPE: Shy RECOMMENDATIONS: _x_ Experienced, adult home only BEHAVIOR SUMMARY: Experienced, Adult Only Denny tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his or 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

01/29/17 Arrived 1/26, but there’s no admissions notes. Nervous and wary, huge tomcat. Hesitant about touching. REALLY enjoyed catnip, definitely got stimulated. Needs time to adjust. Adding to socialization list. 01/30/17 Alert, tense, wary, resists touching, will pull away, anxious, focuses on surroundings, stress meows. Loves catnip, plays with a toy, great appetite, will eat treats from my hand but does inadvertantly use teeth (doesn’t seem like she’s used to this kind of attention). Allowed a little bit of petting while eating, but skittish and uncomfortable. Huge cat, really beautiful markings. Clean, bright, sturdy, alert. UPDATE: Checked in on him before leaving, just to say hello, and he came to the front of the kennel, curious, smelled my extended fingers. Looking forward to spending time with him tomorrow. 01/31/17 Only a very brief interaction as he’s going for S/N. Just stopped to say hello, and he did come to the front of the kennel, sniffed my fingers, seemed curious and interested. Has potential but losing a day of enrichment is unfortunate. Will look forward to seeing him tomorrow. 02/01/17 Seems more uncomfortable today, perhaps some discomfort from S/N yesterday. Apparently went in to the cage of another cat, who’s injured, while in cat recovery and sat with him in his cage, at his feet, peacefully (maybe Denny’s a therapy cat!?) Seems comfortable with other cats, not so much with humans. Likes tuna, grabs it from my hand as if he’s never been offered it this way before. Low growling at attempts to touch. Doesn’t seem to be warming up much, very tense and wary here, unfortunately. Such a handsome, impressively featured cat, needs placement.
