SAFE 2/17/17 FELV+ Young 1-Year Old Brown Tabby – LUNA – NEEDS YOU ASAP AT BACC!
Luna A1102939 – 1 yr. female brown tabby, stray:
Arrived with same “finder” as kitten Sundance, 1102937, each was trapped separately, no idea if there’s a relation. Hunkered in a rear corner of kennel, fearful, tongue sticking out, wide eyes. Sniffed some chicken that I slowly extended to her, but didn’t take from my hand, further tensed and pushed back into the corner, tongue no longer sticking out. Not receptive to touching or handling at this time. Sprayed Feliway and gave a bowl of fresh wet food; doesn’t look like she ate or even moved much during the night. Initial med exam pending.
Pushed into a rear corner of kennel, eyes huge with lots of direct eye contact, no blinking. When I slowly start to open the cage door, shifts weight and poises to flee. Not able to attempt touch. Sprayed Feliway and gave some fresh food and treats. Added a little catnip-silvervine combo to her kennel.
Sedated for exam, did not observe initial interaction
