Hello, my name is Jasper. My animal id is #16778. I am a male black cat at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 6 months 2 weeks old. – P
I came into the shelter as a stray on 23-Dec-2017.
Zip Code: 10003
Jasper is at risk for medical reasons, having been diagnosed with Upper Respiratory Infection, which is contagious to other cats. Due to a tendency to be a little rough in play, we suggest that Jasper would be best suited to a cat experienced home with adults only.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 6.0625 lbs
Details on my behavior are…
Behavior Condition: 4. Orange
KNOWN HISTORY:: Jasper was brought in as a stray, so we don’t have any behavioral history or tendencies in a home environment.
MEDICAL BEHAVIOR:: 12/23 Observed Behavior -tail up initially , allowed petting. hissing once during exam, once restrained began yowling and screaming
ENRICHMENT NOTES:: 12/26/17 Resting at the front, eyes dilated, alert, looking around. Stood when door opened, seemed unsure. Allowed pets, then gently mouthed assess-a-hand but didn’t retreat or vocalize. Stayed at the front after door closed, sniffed hand, gently reached through the bars. 12/27/17 At the front, eyes dilated. Started waving through the bars when spoken to. Ate offered treats, backed away when door opened. Allowed or leaned away from touch, gently pawed assess-a-hand without claws. Still seemed a little unsure, later seen growling at other cat nearby. 12/28/17 Just moved up to adoptions. Sitting up in top cubby, alert, eyes wide and somewhat dilated. Started rubbing against and pawing at the door when spoken to, then came out to explore main compartment. Allowed and briefly leaned into pets, but continually walked away, still seemed unsure. After door closed, sniffed hand between bars, tried to paw again. 12/31/17 Curled up asleep on bedding in top cubby, woke when door opened. Lay in place, soft eyes and body, leaned into pets, purred quietly. Ate offered treats.
Cage Condition:: No change
Reaction to assessor:: Jasper remains neutral, sitting upright by the front during the approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to:: Jasper shows interest with loose body and began to reach out from the cage door.
Reaction to cage door opening:: Jasper slowly engages, eyes widen then runs back and forth attempting to play.
Reaction to touch:: Jasper leans into the petting then pounces and gently grabs the assessor’s hand while softly nipping.
ACTIVITY LEVEL:: Athletic
VOCAL:: Somewhat chatty
CHARACTER TYPE: : Social,Playful,Curious
BEHAVIOR DETERMINATION: : Experienced, adult only
Behavior Asilomar: TM – Treatable-Manageable
BEHAVIOR SUMMARY:: Jasper solicits attention and tolerates petting but may be assertively demanding of attention or may play roughly. Due to pouncing and softly nipping we feel that this cat will do best in an adult only home.
