Safe - 10-28-2017 Brooklyn
SAFE 10/28/17 KAY is a handsome neutered male cat that is ready to find a loving home. Will you be that special person to help make that happen.
Kay 10361 – 3 yr. neutered long haired brown tabby:
Lying in litterbox with a low body, eyes wide. She turns to sniff my hand with ears forward then tolerates petting along her head and body while remaining very still and turning head away from my hand. Needs more time to adjust. Sprayed feliway.
Lying on top of kuranda bed with a low, tense body. She tolerates petting along her head and body while tilting ears, wide eyed. Turns head to watch my hand with a tense face. Eats treats I’ve placed down after I’ve closed the kennel door. Nervous, needs more time to adjust. Sprayed feliway.
Lying I back of kennel with a low body. She tolerates petting along her head and body while looking around the room and sniffing the air. Turns head to smell my hand and licks lips. Eats all treats after I’ve closed the kennel door. Needs some more time to adjust. Sprayed feliway.
Lying in back of kennel in a neutral body position, ears forward and fluffy tail wrapped around body. She tolerates petting initially, remaining still, then begins to lean in. Warms up with continued petting and she leans in with more force, turning her head to head-butt my hand. Purrs loudly and scoots forward, making eye contact with soft eyes. Ate treats from my hand. Beginning to warm up – did great today! Sprayed feliway.
Kay was brought in without information on her behavior history or tendencies in a home environment.
No evidence of aggression, Allowed handling

Cage is neat
Reaction to assessor:
Kay was tense and lying down flat near the back of the kennel.
Reaction when softly spoken to:
Kay keeps his tail wrapped around his body, lip licks and seems wary of his surroundings.
Reaction to cage door opening:
Kay remains motionless.
Reaction to touch:
Kay seems hesitant of contact and remains still when the assessor approaches. He closes his eyes and tolerates slow, gentle pets along his body. After a few minutes of attention he gently nudges the assessor’s hand, leans in when rubbed on his cheeks and starts to purr.
TM – Treatable-Manageable
Kay may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents.
