I was found in NY 11427.
I have been at the shelter since Sep 17, 2016.
Initial Exam (9/18/16)

URI – MPND, sneezing. Move to isolation, start doxycycline 0.25 ml PO SID x10 days, nebulization BID x5 days, LRS 20 ml SQ SID x5 days. Monitor appetite.
Midnighta was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home. She was quiet and friendly upon intake, and allowed all handling to be conducted during her initial medical exam.
Reaction to assessor: Midnighta comes to the front and was calm, relaxed, and friendly.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Midnighta meows and solicits attention, rubbing against the cage door.
Reaction to cage door opening: Midnighta remains soft and relaxed.
Reaction to touch: Midnighta head-butts, leans in for petting, and begins to purr. She is very affectionate throughout the interaction.
Reaction to being picked up: Midnighta remains calm and continues to purr when held.
Behavior Determination: Beginner
Midnighta interacts with the observer, solicits attention, is easy to handle and tolerates all petting. This cat can go to a beginner home.
