*** SAFE 01/26/18 *** Logan was brought to MACC because the owner has too many pets and they are moving. He lived with another cat and kittens and was noted to be gentle.
Hello, my name is Logan. My animal id is #18153. I am a male black cat at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 1 years 1 weeks old. – P
I came into the shelter as a owner surrender on 12-Jan-2018, with the surrender reason stated as not a fit – too many animals already.
Original Location: 10467
Logan is at risk for behavior reasons. Logan is shy and tends to hide, but does tolerate petting. His behavior has been deteriorating in the shelter and he now growls when approached and will hiss when petting is attempted. Medically, Logan has a heart murmur which precludes him from surgery, but he otherwise presents as a healthy cat.
My medical notes are…

BEHAVIOR SUMMARY:: Logan 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. ** Update 1/23/18 ** Logan appears to be deteriorating in our adoption room. Initially tolerating all petting and was just a little unsure and nervous, however now he displays distance increasing behavior upon approach. He growls when cage door opens and hisses when petting is attempted. Due to his stress levels in the care center we recommend quick placement into a calm home environment is in his best interest. We feel that this cat will do best in an experienced, adult only home who understands this cat may need time to warm up to his new home and family at his own pace.
