SAFE 2/12/16 Meet handsome gray boy Noriko. This boy came into our care center as a stray and may be possibly CH. He needs a warm and quiet home now where he can regain his strength and some TLC.
He will also need follow up vet care for further diagnosis of his medical condition.

Noriko was brought in as a stray, so we cannot speak to his behavior in his previous home. He was low against the ground upon intake and was playfully swatting at string. He allowed the counselor to handle him without issue. He was slightly nervous during his exam, but he allowed handling and wobbles when walking. Please not that this cat has been diagnosed for a severe medical condition at the time of the evaluation. It is difficult to determine at this time how the medical condition may be affecting the behavior.
Reaction to assessor: Noriko was calm and relaxed upon approach.
Reaction when softly spoken to: Noriko looks at the assessor with relaxed eyes.
Reaction to cage door opening: Noriko remains soft and relaxed.
Reaction to touch: Noriko remains in place for petting on his head, but hisses when pet on his body. He seems to appreciate petting on his head; he will lean in, purr, and roll over. He will allow gentle petting on his body still, but he stiffens in place and the end of his tail will flicker.
Behavior Determination: Experience
Noriko was willing to connect and interact with the assessor, and he allowed gentle petting during the interaction. However, due to his reaction when pet on areas other than his head, we feel that placement with experienced cat parents is in Noriko’s best interest.
Possibly neuro. Very wobbly. Wants to interact, but falls over when walking to front. Went back to laying down and allowed all pets.
