Intake condition EXAM REQ Intake Date 07/12/2017, From NY 11365, DueOut Date 07/15/2017, I came in with Group/Litter #K17-104020.
Minky was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to her behavior in her previous home.
Lying in litter box with a low, tense body, ears tilted. Tolerates petting along her head and body while lowering body further and turning head to watch my hand. Needs more time to adjust.
Cage Condition: Cage is neat
Reaction to assessor: Minky was curled up on her bed at the back of the cage.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Minky shifts away to the other side of the double kennel.
Reaction to cage door opening: Minky was crouched, shaking and alert.
Reaction to touch: Minky sinks low into her litter box but sniffs the assessor’s hand when approached. She warms up quickly, leans in for petting and purrs softly when rubbed. Her body perks up with attention and she brushes up against the assessor’s hand.
Reaction to being picked up: Minky was a bit tense when picked up but she slowly relaxed in the assessor’s arms.
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Laid back
CHARACTER TYPE: Shy, Sweet
Kitten socialization – Minky is a young cat that may not have had many interactions with humans from an early age. She may be apprehensive of people, but the behavior team believes she has potential to warm up to people. Kittens less than 8 weeks of age can be socialized by almost anyone; however, kittens between 2-4 months may require more time and skill in order for them to be comfortable around people. Please speak to an adoption counselor to learn more about socialization techniques.
Experienced cat parent – Minky may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her new home. We recommend that this cat go to a home with experienced cat parents
