FRAGGLEROCK – A1076929
I am a spayed female, brown tabby Domestic Shorthair mix.
The shelter staff think I am about 3 years old.
I weigh 15 pounds.
I was found in NY 11208.
I have been at the shelter since Jun 10, 2016.
Reaction to assessor: Fragglerock was lying down, calm and relaxed.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Fragglerock looks at the assessor and blinks softly.
Reaction to cage door opening: Fragglerock becomes alert, but remains calm.
Reaction to touch: Fragglerock remains in place and leans in for petting. She appears watchful of her surroundings, but is receptive to attention.
Reaction to pick up: Fragglerock remains calm and allows handling.
Behavior Determination: Average
Fragglerock interacts with the observer, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat is showing behavior appropriate for new or experienced cat parents.
FraggleRock lived with a family prior to her being surrendered to the care center. After two years the family could no longer care for the cat due to behavior and returned the cat to the finder 2-3 months ago. The family reported that Fragglerock was unpredictable and would lash out without warning. She scratches while being pet but doesn’t give signals or signs of overstimulation to warn someone to stop. During the time Fragglerock was with the family it was reported that she did not do well with their kids. Fragglerock did not do well with other cats.
Reaction to assessor: Fragglerock does not come to front but looks at you relaxed and friendly
When spoken quietly: Fragglerock does not come to front but looks at you relaxed and friendly
Reaction to door cage opening: Fragglerock remains soft and relaxed
Reaction to touch: Fragglerock allows petting and attention
Try picking cat up: Fragglerock is tolerant of this type of handling.
Behavior Determination: Experience
Fraggleock was displaying good behavior, did not come to the front of the kennel but interacts with the Assessor, appreciates attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. Although he has displayed behaviors appropriate for cat parents with an average amount of experience, due to Fraggleock’s previous owner history, we feel it’s best she goes to a home with an experience cat owner. Also any family with younger children should do a thorough interaction before adopting.

A volunteer writes: This is the kind of kitty that wiggles its way into your heart until it makes that space its own and you suddenly realize that you’re in love! Not that it’s hard to love this little brown tabby. She’s friendly and alert and always ready to rock and roll with you. Paw out, chin up, saying, “Hey! Come on over and pet me! Better yet, how about a Greenie? I sure do love them.” Fragglerock is active and playful, and she would need some space to run around in and windows to perch in to watch the birdies.
