JADE – A1123191
Safe - 8-31-2017 Brooklyn
SAFE 8/31/17 JADE is a neutered male kitten in need of a loving home.
Jade A1123191 – 13 week neutered gray tabby:
Jade was brought in as a stray, so there is no information on their behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment. He allowed minimal handling during intake and was placed into a cat den.
Observed Behavior – tries to flee.
He’s very tense and was pinned up against the back of the cubby with his ears bent flat. He hissed when I tried interacting with him using the bear claw. He tolerates petting but he’s very uncomfortable and stress meows throughout the interaction.
Makes eye contact, keeps a low body. I pet him along his head and body and he warms up after a few moments, body relaxes and he begins to lean in. He rolls over onto his side with continued petting, tail wrapped around body. Head-butts gently and leans against my hands, begins to purr. Warming up!
Cage Condition: Cage is neat
Reaction to assessor: Jade was resting, but turns to face the assessor when approached.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Jade sits upright and makes eye contact with soft eyes.
Reaction to cage door opening: Jade hisses and curls up by the back of his kennel.
Reaction to touch: Jade was hesitant and lowers his head, but accepts gentle petting. He starts shaking, but he continues to allow gentle strokes and he appears to warm up. He gentle head-butts after and arches his back, beginning to purr. Although his tail is wrapped around his body, he appears to appreciate attention.
Reaction to pick up: Jade is tense during pick up, but nuzzles against the assessor when held.
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
CHARACTER TYPE: Shy, Timid, Sweet
– Kitten Socialization – Jade is a young cat that may not have had many interactions with humans from an early age. He may be apprehensive of people, but the behavior team believes he has potential to warm up to people. Kittens less than 8 weeks of age can be socialized by almost anyone; however, kittens between 2-4 months may require more time and skill in order for them to be comfortable around people.
– Experienced cat parents – Jade warms up to attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter. He may need time to warm up to his new home and family. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
