MIDNIGHT – A1094020
Gone - 10-23-2016 Brooklyn
***GONE 10/23/16*** FIV POSITIVE MIDNIGHT IS HOPING THAT SOMEONE WILL OPEN THEIR HEART AND HOME TO HIM TONIGHT! MIDNIGHT was brought into the shelter as a stray. He has some wounds and abrasions that suggest he may have been hit by a car. MIDNIGHT is about 10 years old. He sadly tested positive for FIV. This is not any reason to kill him though, since FIV cats CAN live with non-FIV cats. He would love to have a home and be pampered like any kitty should. MIDNIGHT was a little nervous and tense on his assessment but that is only because he is in a scary place. Give him a chance and he will relax and become a wonderful purr-bug.

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
Mid Night was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. Reaction to assessor: Mid Night was hiding in his feral den at the back of the kennel. Reaction when softly spoken to: Mid Night makes eye contact through the air holes but doesn’t come forward when coaxed. Reaction to cage door opening: Mid Night remains motionless. Reaction to touch: Mid Night has wide eyes focused on the assessor and flinches when touched. He closes his eyes and becomes immobile when touched on his head. Not interested in interacting with the assessor and turns away with his tail curled up at his side. Please note that this cat is being treated for a wound at the time of evaluation. It is difficult to determine at this time how the medical condition may be affecting the behavior. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Mid Night tolerates attention and petting but may be fearful or stressed in the shelter, and may be intimidated by small children. He may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to his new home. Due to the behaviors seen in the care center, we feel that this cat will do best in a calm, quiet home with experienced cat parents and without children.
