MURCA – A1069637
Safe - 4-12-2016 Brooklyn Rescue: Feline Rescue of SI Please honor your pledges: http://felinerescueofstatenisland.org/donation/
**SAFE 04/12/16** Found as a wee baby kitten, young MURCA thought she had her forever family and was clearly making herself right at home. Please read her owner surrender notes, because they paint a picture of an absolutely delightful little girl. It’s a shame that someone who had been MURCA’s safety net for so many months, was unwilling to buy an antihistamine and keep Murca safe at home. For the want of a nail, a shoe was lost; for the want of a Benadryl, Murca’s life is going to be lost. This sweetie pie could be the first cat to go down at the ACC right after noon tomorrow, unless a foster/adopter is found for her tonight!

Exam Type BEHAVIOR
As per previous owner, Murca is described as being quiet and shy with a low activity. She has not been socialized with other cats and dogs. Murca likes using her cardboard scratching post and playing with plastic bottle caps. Reaction to assessor: Murca makes eye contact with a relaxed body. Reaction when softly spoken to: Murca comes to the front and reaches out with paws. She rubs against the kennel door and her tail starts to flicker. Reaction to cage door opening: Murca is calm and relaxed. Reaction to touch: Murca sniffs the assessor’s hand and rubs up for attention. She whips around quickly when touched on her back. Her tail flickers intensely and she starts to grumble. Murca is social and affectionate but appears to be easily overstimulated. As a result of this observed behavior we recommend adopters who are familiar with signs of behavioral arousal and agitation in cats, so that interactions can be ended before Murca becomes overstimulated. We also recommend fishing pole-type toys for play as they allow for interaction and vigorous, stimulating exercise while keeping human hands at a distance. Behavior Determination: Experience No Child Murca solicits attention and tolerates petting but may be assertively demanding of attention or may play roughly. She may be a little more independent, and may need time to warm up to her 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.
